Abstract : For a large class of situations the two sample sequential probability ratio test shown to terminate with probability one. The results are obtained by showing the convergence of the logarithm of the nth root of the probability ratio to a difference of two KullbackLeibler information numbers. These results partially solve the general problem of Savage and Sethuraman (Ann. Math. Statist. 37 (1966) 11541160). (Author)
