Bayesian sequential tests of the initial size of a linear pure death process
MetadataShow full item record
We provide a recursive algorithm for determining the sampling plans of invariant Bayesian sequential tests of the initial size of a linear pure death process of unknown rate. These tests compare favourably with the corresponding truncated sequential probability ratio tests.
