Abstract : The report contains the derivation and properties of sequential tests of composite hypotheses for families of distributions satisfying certain conditions. The following topics are discussed: Sequential test 'S'; Discrimination among k > 2 hypotheses in the presence of nuisance parameters; Some tests with the usual decision boundaries; Sequential tests for analysis of variance under random and mixed models; Some exact results.
