Definition: Let $H_0$ be a point null hypothesis
\[\label{eq:h0-point} H_0: \; \theta = \theta_0 \;\]and consider a set alternative hypothesis $H_1$. Then,
- $H_1$ is called a left-sided one-tailed hypothesis, if $\theta$ is assumed to be smaller than $\theta_0$:
- $H_1$ is called a right-sided one-tailed hypothesis, if $\theta$ is assumed to be larger than $\theta_0$:
- $H_1$ is called a two-tailed hypothesis, if $\theta$ is assumed to be unequal to $\theta_0$:
