Various results on sequential hypotheses testing are reviewed. Optimal stopping rules are related to a local measure of statistical information. In some cases, local information can be approximated by L-numbers discovered by Lorden, and simple rules based on these approximations are asymptotically optimal to better order than the cost for a single observation. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
