In science:

Here for clearness we expose the results on multiple hypotheses LAO testing for the case of the most simple invariant ob ject.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
We recognize that a sequence ϕ∗ of tests is LAO if for given positive values of M − 1 diagonal, elements of matrix E(ϕ∗ ) the procedure provides maximal values for all other elements of it.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
LAO sequence ϕ∗ of tests, the reliabilities matrix of which E(ϕ∗ ) = {E ∗ m|l} is defined in (3.8)–(3.11) and al l elements of it are positive.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
It is worth to formulate the following useful property of reliabilities matrix of the LAO test.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
Consequently the first M − 1 elements of the last column also can play a part as given parameters for construction of a LAO test.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
Our approach to the problem gives also the possibility to define the LAO tests for each of the separate ob jects, but the approach with renumbering of K -vectors of hypotheses does not have this opportunity.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
We consider characteristics of procedures of LAO testing of probability distributions of two related (stochastical ly, statistical ly and strictly dependent) ob jects.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
Discussed in Comment 4.1 the direct approach for LAO testing of PDs for two related ob jects, consisting in consideration of the pair of ob jects as one composite ob ject and then use of Theorem 3.1, is applicable for first two cases .
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
M2 − 1, then there exists a LAO test sequence Φ∗ , the matrix of which E(Φ∗ ) is stated above and al l elements of it are positive.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
Now we will present the lower estimates of the reliabilities for LAO identification for the dependent ob ject which can be then applied for deducing the lower estimates of the reliabilities for LAO identification of two related objects.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
This section is devoted to description of characteristics of LAO hypotheses testing with permission of decision rejection for the model consisting of one or more ob jects.
Multiple Objects: Error Exponents in Hypotheses Testing and Identification
We call the test LAO for this model if for given positive values of certain M elements of the matrix E(ϕ) the procedure provides maximal values for other elements of it.
