Hi arl_stat,

» Please help me to understand the alpha value considered for sample size estimation.

α is the nominal level of the test. In BE generally 0.05, which gives a two-sided 100 × (1 – 2α) = 90% CI. α is fixed by the authority, i.e., you are not free to choose it in sample size estimation.

A central lesson of science is that to understand complex issues
(or even simple ones), we must try to free our minds of dogma and
to guarantee the freedom to publish, to contradict, and to experiment.
Arguments from authority are unacceptable.    Carl Sagan
