Hi ElMaestro,

» […] powerTOST's nomenclature seems to differ a bit (?) from Hauschke's in that it uses theta1 and theta2 where Hauscke would use f1 and f2. In powerTOST theta1 defaults to 0.8 when the limit for the ratio is actually 0.8*mu(R), or so I am reading it.

Nope. Hauschke et al.1 use $$H_0:\frac{\mu_T}{\mu_R}\leqslant\theta_1\,\textrm{or}\,\frac{\mu_T}{\mu_R}\geqslant\theta_2\;\textrm{versus}\;H_1:\theta_1<\frac{\mu_T}{\mu_R}<\theta_2\tag{3}$$and \((\theta_1,\theta_2)=(0.8,1.25)\) as well (see the figures and paragraphs below them).

» […] the important part of this post is how the CI for the ratio is actually derived.

It never hurts to read the primary document.2 ;-)

We absolutely must leave room for doubt
or there is no progress and no learning.
There is no learning without having to pose a question.
And a question requires doubt.
People search for certainty.
But there is no certainty.    Richard Feynman
