A note on testing two-dimensional normal mean
For the problem of testing a composite hypothesis with one-sided alternatives of the mean vector of a two-dimensional normal distribution, a characterization of similar tests is presented and an unbiased test dominating the likelihood ratio test is proposed. A sufficient condition for admissibility is given, which implies the result given by Cohen et al. (1983,Studies in Econometrics, Time Series and Multivariate Statistics, Academic Press): the admissibility of the likelihood ratio test.
