Repeated likelihood ratio test for the variance of normal distribution with unknown mean

  • Yao Qiwei 


This paper considers the repeated likelihood ratio test for the variance of normal distribution with un-known mean. The large deviations for Type I, and Type II error probabilities have been developed.
