Hi Hötzi,

» Quick & extremely dirty:
» library(PowerTOST)
» 100*power.TOST(alpha=0.5, CV=0.3, theta0=0.95, n=40, theta1=0.8, theta2=1)-1.25
» # [1] 76.57964

I can't follow this, alpha 0.5? Substraction of 1.25% somehow from ... what?

Instead, I propose something along the lines of:

pwrDK222BE=function(alpha, CV, theta0, theta1, theta2, n)
  ##power the standard way is P(GMR is below theta2)-P(GMR is below theta1)
  ##and thus we just plug in upper or lower= 1 to get us what we need.
  P= power.TOST(alpha=alpha, CV=CV,
       theta0=theta0, n=n, theta1=theta1, theta2=theta2)
  Plow= power.TOST(alpha=alpha, CV=CV,
        theta0=theta0, n=n, theta1=theta1, theta2=1.0) 
  Phi  =power.TOST(alpha=alpha, CV=CV,
       theta0=theta0, n=n, theta1=1.0, theta2=theta2)

pwrDK222BE(0.05, 0.3, 0.95, 0.8, 1.25, 40)

[1] 0.7652256

I could be wrong, but...

All we know about the world teaches us that the effects of A and B
are always different—in some decimal place—for any A and B.
Thus asking “are the effects different?” is foolish.    John W. Tukey
