Abstract : As measures of goodness of a selection rule, usually two quantities, the probability of a correct selection and the expected size of the selected subset, are considered. Based on these two criteria, Gupta and Huang (1980) proved a theorem to derive a selection procedure with some optimality property. However, the theorem cannot be applied to the unequal sample sizes case. In this paper, its authors use a different method to generalize this theorem to the unequal sample sizes case. Also a dual problem is investigated. Also, they treat a selection procedure in terms of multiple tests. Based on this approach, an optimality result is derived. (Author)
