Independent objects, Statistical hypotheses, Neyman-Pearson testing, Error probability


The Neyman-Pearson principle for a model consisting of two independent objects is considered. It is supposed that two probability distributions are known and each object follows one of them independently. Two approaches of Neyman-Pearson testing are considered for this model. The aim is to compare error probabilities to the corresponding two cases.
