In science:

Again, the goal is to find the minimum sample size per null in order to attain a given pFDR level, in particular when Fi under false Hi only have small differences from those under true Hi .
Sample size and positive false discovery rate control for multiple testing
Under the random effects model (1.1), each null Hi is associated with a distribution Fi , such that when Hi is true, Fi = P0 , and when Hi is false, Fi = Pθ , where θ > 0 is a constant.
Sample size and positive false discovery rate control for multiple testing
Assume that each Hi is tested based on an iid sample {ωij } from Fi , such that the samples for different Hi are independent, and the sample size is the same for all Hi .
Sample size and positive false discovery rate control for multiple testing
Inductively, we suppose given family of morphisms (Hi , τi )i≤n so that Hi : Pi → Qi+1 , τi : Hi ⇒ Gi+1 ◦ Ti + Ti−1 ◦ Fi + Ki .
