Abstract

This paper is concerned with the determination of whether two multivariate normal mean vectors differ by a multiplicative factor or by a multiplicative factor plus a displacement along a specified direction. These considerations arise, for example, in the evaluation of drugs, where two drugs affecting the same symptoms are considered equivalent if they can be made equal by a change in dosage. Maximum likelihood estimators and likelihood ratio tests for the relevant parameters are considered.
