The problems involved in testing statistical hypotheses occupy an important place in applied statistics and are used in such areas as genetics, biology, astronomy, radar, computer graphics, etc. The classical methods for solving these problems are based on a single hypothesis test.

Finally, the Lindeberg condition is met: for any, Applying the Hoeffding inequality, we obtain, Taking into account the definition of the class, Applying Bernstein’s inequality, we obtain, A similar statement is true for the class, The main steps in the proof of this theorem repeat the proof of Theorem 3. MDPI stays neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations. Important practical tasks are economical representation, searching for significant features, and removal of insignificant (noise) features. Finally we perform some sim- ulations experiments to see how the asymptotic results behave for small sample and the performances are quite satisfactory. 075-15-2020-799. Guaranteed confidence intervals would help to understand how the results of Theorems 3 and 4 affect the risk estimation for a finite sample size.

In this paper, we consider a procedure based on the false discovery rate (FDR) measure that controls the expected percentage of false rejections of the null hypothesis. The bounds on this mixing rate are instrumental in deriving the asymptotic properties of the MLE. In more general models we often can’t obtain exact results for estimators’ properties.
