Testing Statistical Hypotheses

  title={Testing Statistical Hypotheses},
  author={George Casella and Ingram Olkin and Stephen E. Fienberg},
  journal={Probability and Statistical Inference, Third Edition},
This classic textbook, now available from Springer, summarizes developments in the field of hypotheses testing. Optimality considerations continue to provide the organizing principle. However, they are now tempered by a much stronger emphasis on the robustness properties of the resulting procedures. This book is an essential reference for any graduate student in statistics. 

Statistical Inference , Lecture notes

The first half of this document is a crash-bang-wallop summary of the statistical material that I would present in a comprehensive second undergraduate course on statistical inference at a leading UK

50 shades of Bayesian testing of hypotheses

Hypothesis testing and model choice are quintessential questions for statistical inference and while the Bayesian paradigm seems ideally suited for answering these questions, it faces difficulties of

Bayesian (mean) most powerful tests

A fundamental theorem in hypothesis testing is the Neyman‐Pearson (N‐P) lemma, which creates the most powerful test of simple hypotheses. In this article, we establish Bayesian framework of

Understanding Statistical Hypothesis Testing: The Logic of Statistical Inference

The underlying logic behind statistical hypothesis testing, the formal meaning of its components and their connections are discussed, and the presentation is applicable to all statistical hypothesis tests as generic backbone and, hence, useful across all application domains in data science and artificial intelligence.

Admissibility of Test Procedures for Linear Hypotheses in General Linear Model

This article shows that an F-test procedure is admissible for testing a linear hypothesis concerning one of the split mean vectors in a general linear model and an F-test procedure is also admissible

Permutation tests without subgroups

This work extends beyond these possibilities to show how such tests can be run using any subset of permutations, and takes a random draw of permutation groups to do so.

An Honest Approach to Parallel Trends Online Supplementary Materials

The main text of the paper considers a finite sample normal model, which is motivated as an asymptotic approximation to a variety of econometric settings of interest. In this section, we show that

On Confidence Intervals and Two-Sided Hypothesis Testing

This thesis consists of a summary and six papers, dealing with confidence intervals and two-sided tests of point-null hypotheses.In Paper I, we study Bayesian point-null hypothesis tests based on c

Generalized permutation tests

It is shown how permutation tests can be run using any distribution over any subset of permutations, with all the previous options as a special case.

Significance tests for the evaluation of ranking methods

A statistical model is presented that interprets the evaluation of ranking methods as a random experiment and predicts the variability of evaluation results, so that appropriate significance tests for the results can be derived.
