THE PARAMETRIC EMPIRICAL BAYES APPROACH TO STATISTICAL HYPOTHESIS TESTING AND POINT ESTIMATION,
VIRGINIA POLYTECHNIC INST BLACKSBURG
Several papers have been written giving empirical Bayes estimators or tests of hypothesis which are asymptotically optimal for particular conditional distributions. In this paper sufficient conditions are given for a sequence of point estimators or tests of hypothesis to be asymptotically optimal. Two general methods are then given which can be used to find these sequences for a wide class of conditional distributions. Author
