This paper deals with the problem of simultaneously making many (M) binary decisions based on one realization of a random data matrix X. M is typically large and X will usually have M rows associated with each of the M decisions to make, but for each row the data may be low dimensional. Such problems arise in many practical areas such as the biological and medical sciences, where the available dataset is from microarrays or other high-throughput technology and with the goal being to decide… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

A decision-theoretical alternative to testing many hypotheses.
TLDR
A decision-theoretical approach is developed in which errors (misclassifications) of the two kinds are associated with uneven losses, and the total expected loss in the collection of the classifications is minimized.
Classes of multiple decision functions strongly controlling FWER and FDR
TLDR
These classes offer the possibility that optimal multiple decision functions with respect to a pre-specified Type II error criterion, such as the missed discovery rate (MDR), could be found which control the FWER or FDR Type I error rates.
The effects of pediatric epilepsy on a language connectome
TLDR
This study introduced a new approach for assessing the effects of pediatric epilepsy on a language connectome and ascertained that the network differences presented by the networks were associated with pediatric epilepsy.

FDR and Bayesian Multiple Comparisons Rules
TLDR
An optimal Bayes rule is derived that is a variation of the Benjamini and Hochberg (1995) procedure, based on increments in ordered posterior probabilities instead of ordered pvalues, to derive conditional expected FDR, conditional on the data.
A GENERAL DECISION THEORETIC FORMULATION OF PROCEDURES CONTROLLING FDR AND FNR FROM A BAYESIAN PERSPECTIVE
A general decision theoretic formulation is given to multiple testing, al- lowing descriptions of measures of false discoveries and false non-discoveries in terms of certain loss functions even when
A comparison of the Benjamini-Hochberg procedure with some Bayesian rules for multiple testing
TLDR
The results confirm the observation of Genovese and Wasserman (2002) that for small p the misclassification error of BH is close to optimal in the sense of attaining the Bayes oracle.
The positive false discovery rate: a Bayesian interpretation and the q-value
TLDR
This work introduces a modified version of the FDR called the “positive false discovery rate” (pFDR), which can be written as a Bayesian posterior probability and can be connected to classification theory.
Oracle and Adaptive Compound Decision Rules for False Discovery Rate Control
TLDR
A compound decision theory framework for multiple-testing problems is developed and an oracle rule based on the z values is derived that minimizes the false nondiscovery rate (FNR) and is more efficient than the conventional p value–based methods.
On false discovery rate thresholding for classification under sparsity
TLDR
The authors' oracle inequalities show theoretically that the resulting FDR thresholding adapts to the unknown sparsity regime contained in the data, as the number m of items to be classified tends to infinity and in a regime where the power of the Bayes rule is away from 0 and 1.

TLDR
Chapter 11 includes more case studies in other areas, ranging from manufacturing to marketing research, and a detailed comparison with other diagnostic tools, such as logistic regression and tree-based methods.
