Abstract : The paper deals with selection and ranking procedures for multivariate normal populations. Procedures for selecting a subset containing the (unknown) population with the smallest generalized variance, the largest Mahalanobis distance function and the largest (smallest) multiple correlation coefficient are described. The paper also surveys other known results in ranking problems for these populations and mentions some unsolved problems. (Modified author abstract)
