# When to use null hypothesis testing? [closed]

When is it reasonable to formulate and test a null hypothesis? Could be the used assumptions explained in Bayesian terms? Or should Bayesians use something else?

Is it possible to compare it to the estimation of the posterior probability: P(h|data)?
