Comparison of multinomial cells with a control

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Inverse sampling procedures are proposed for comparison of k given multinomial cells among themselves and with reference to a control cell. The measures of distance are the ratio of the cell probabilities. With the aid of Type 2-Dirichlet integrals, we (i) express the probability of a correct selection in terms of integrals with parameters only in the upper or lower limits of integration and (ii) to prove the least favorable configuration under all the procedures are the so called slippage configuration.
