Bayesian testing of a point null hypothesis is considered. The null hypothesisis that an observation, x, is distributed according to the normal distribution with a mean ofzero and known variance q2. The alternative hypothesis is that x is distributed accordingto a normal distribution with an unknown nonzero mean, μ, and variance q2. The testingproblem is formulated as a prediction problem. Bayesian testing based on priors constructedby using conditional mutual information is investigated. View Full-Text
