    Your question is not clear. Your last reference is from 1961 so is a bit dated to say the least (pre-Bell). Could you be more specific?

    I try to rephrase:

    How can we choose "safe" critical value or significance level in a framework of QT when applying the null hypothesis?

    Does this make any sense?

    In most sciences about 2 standard deviations (95% confidence) is traditional. Modern physics, however, tends to use much higher levels, like 5 standard deviations (99.9999% confidence).
