Abstract

A new approach is suggested which allows to combine the advantages of methods based on Kolmogorov complexity with classical methods of testing of statistical hypotheses. As distinct from other approaches to analysis of different sequences by means of Kolmogorov complexity, we stay within the framework of mathematical statistics. As examples, we consider behavioural sequences of animals (ethological texts'') testing the hypotheses whether the complexity of hunting behaviour in ants and rodents depends on the age of an individual.
