Abstract : Several papers have been written giving empirical Bayes estimators or tests of hypothesis which are asymptotically optimal for particular conditional distributions. In this paper sufficient conditions are given for a sequence of point estimators or tests of hypothesis to be asymptotically optimal. Two general methods are then given which can be used to find these sequences for a wide class of conditional distributions. (Author)
