Abstract : The report deals with some nonrandomized distribution-free ranking and selection procedures using the subset selection approach. Chapter I begins by considering two classes of selection rules depending on a continuous, but otherwise arbitrary, distribution G. Chapter II discusses the distribution theory associated with the two distribution-free procedures under consideration. Chapter III compares some performance characteristics of the two procedures with those of possible competing procedures.
