### Abstract

Abstract. In this paper, we shall consider the case where a stationary vector process {X_{t}} belongs to one of two categories described by two hypotheses π_{1} and π_{2}. These hypotheses specify that {X_{t}} has spectral density matrices f(Λ) and g(Λ) under π_{1} and π_{2}, respectively. Although Gaussianity of {X_{t}} is not assumed, we can formally make the Gaussian likelihood ratio (GLR) based on X(1),…X(T). Then an approximation I(f:g) of the GLR is given in terms of f(Λ) and g(Λ). If f(Λ) and g(Λ) are known, we can use I(f:g) as a classification statistic. It is shown that I(f:g) is a consistent classification criterion in the sense that the misclassification probabilities converge to zero as T→∝. When g is contiguous to f, we discuss non‐Gaussian robustness of I(f:g). A sufficient condition for the non‐Gaussian robustness will be given. Also a numerical example will be given.
