Behrens fisher problem, Advanced Statistics

Behrens Fisher problem: The difficulty of testing for the equality of the means of the two normal distributions which do not have the equal variance. Various test statistics have been planned, even though none of them are completely satisfactory. The one which is most commonly used can be given as
