# Abstract:

The level probabilities of order restricted inference are fundamental to that theory their values are the probabilities that the order restricted, maximum likelihood estimates of normal means assume specified numbers of distinct values, called levels. Those probabilities are computed under the assumptions that the population means are equal and that the sampling from the various populations is done independently. The level probabilities depend upon a vector of weights usually the various sample sizes and the use of much of the theory of order restricted inference has been limited by the fact that those level probabilities can be virtually impossible to compute if the weights are not all equal.
