Distribution curves of null and alternative hypothesis. The red area is the area defined by the alternative hypothesis minus the area defined by the null hypothesis, or, put differently, as the true positive rate (TPR, or 1 − β) minus the false positive rate (FPR, or α or type I error), hence ‘net power’ = 1 – β − α. The cutoff point is defined as the crossing point of the two distributions
