In summary, the speaker wants to test a stochastic version of their deterministic theory by setting up a hypothesis test and comparing the probability distributions of the two sets of data, x and y. However, they realize that they need more information, such as a specific probability model, to properly conduct the test.

PAHV said:I want to assume that the numbers x and y are stochastic. If we let f(.) be a pdf

To do a hypothesis test, you must assume enough information in the hypothesis H0 to be able to compute the probability that the observed data happened. Your statements that "x and y are stochastic" and that we let "f(.) be a pdf" are not sufficient to describe a specific probability model for the data. Think of trying to write a stochastic simulation for the data. What you have said isn't sufficient information to give to a programmer who is supposed to write the simulation. Can you describe how you would simulate the data in a computer program?
