Upper and lower bounds are derived for the area under the receiver-operating-characteristic (ROC) curve of binary hypothesis testing. These results are compared with the area-under-the-curve (AUC) approximation and the AUC lower bound recently reported by Barrett <i>et al</i>. [J. Opt. Soc. Am A <b>15</b>, 1520 (1998)].
