© 2019 The Authors. International Statistical Review published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of International Statistical Institute. Methods for the analysis of large numbers of p-values, observed levels of significance, are reviewed with some emphasis placed on the Rényi decomposition hinging on the relation with independent exponentially distributed random variables.
