\(\lambda\)-measures of hypoentropy and comparison of experiments: Blackwell and Lehmann approach. (English) Zbl 0766.62002

Summary: C. Ferreri [Statistica 40, 155-168 (1980; Zbl 0454.62004)] introduced and studied a \(\lambda\)-measure of hypoentropy. I. J. Taneja [ibid. 46, 465-478 (1986; Zbl 0616.62008)] extended it towards applications point of view. Recently, the authors [ in a paper to appear in Statistica] studied its applications to compare the experiments using Bayesian approach. In this paper, our aim is to study more applications of this measure in comparison of experiments applying Blackwell’s as well as Lehmann’s approach.
