Paper Abstract

In this paper, the classification problem is considered when the alternative distributions have given functional forms but with unspecified parameters. No systematic attempt seems to have been made to offer solutions for small samples. Here a way for eliminating nuisance parameters from the classification problem is proposed, which is based on consideration of a statistic transforming the original observations, the transformation so chosen that the distribution of this statistic does not depend on the nuisance parameters. The price paid for the elimination of the nuisance parameters is the fact that instead of the original n observations we are left with n1 (n1
