Abstract

Sequential tests that are LMP for certain one-sided testing problems are discussed. In all cases considered, the stopping rule is the first time a certain random walk leaves a bounded interval. (Thus various inequalities and approximations due to Wald can be utilized in obtaining properties of these tests.) For models in a one-parameter exponential family, each LMP sequential test is shown to be a Wald SPRT for a family of paired (conjugate) simple hypotheses.
