Statistical Decision Theory and Related Topics is a collection of the papers presented at the Symposium on Statistical Decision Theory and Related Topics which was held on November 23-25, 1970 at Purdue University. The conference brought together research workers in decision theory and related topics. This volume contains twenty papers presented during the symposium and includes works on molecular studies of evolution, globally optimal procedure for one-sided comparisons, multiple decision theory, outlier detection, empirical Bayes slippage tests, and non-optimality of likelihood ratio tests for sequential detection of signals in Gaussian noise. Mathematicians and statisticians will find the book highly insightful.
