  • Subject: QA

In this paper we give a decision-theoretic oriented, objective Bayesian answer to the problems\ud of point estimating and sharp hypothesis testing about the correlation coefficient of a bivariate\ud Normal population. Under this view both problems are deemed closely rel... View more
