    Abstract

    Given are k(2) exponential populations differing only in their location parameter. One wishes to choose the best one, that is the population with the largest value of the location parameter. A possible method for solving this problem is to select a subset of the k populations of size at least one which includes the best population with a required confidence P*(k-1 P* 1). In this paper the required selection constant is determined for different values of k and P*. Also an approximation for the selection constant is derived. A comparison with the exact results is made.
