Hypothesis testing problem.

here is a hypothesis that may be true (state $\omega_{1}$ ) or false (state $\omega_{2}$ ). The decision $\alpha$ is the assertion of the hypothesis. The penalty function MATH has the property MATH Such property enforces greater penalty for the false decision then for the correct one for every prior state.

Given the observation $x$ we choose the decision $\alpha_{1}$ if MATH and choose $\alpha_{2}$ otherwise. Equivalently, MATH MATH Note that MATH Hence, MATH where the $T$ stands for ''threshold''. This result is called ''likelihood ratio test''. Note, that if MATH and MATH then the rule simply says ''choose $\omega_{1}$ if MATH ''.

With the decision rule MATH known one may compute an apriori probability of the correct judgement as MATH MATH MATH
