## Optimum experimental designs, with SASExperiments in the field and in the laboratory cannot avoid random error,and statistical methods are essential for their efficient design and analysis.This book focuses on the use of SAS, a powerful software package that provides acomplete set of statistical tools including analysis of variance, regression,categorical data analysis, and multivariate analysis. Many examples of SAS code,results, plots and tables are provided, along with a fully supported website.The text contains numerous figures, and end of chapter notes on further reading.Exercises consolidating the material covered are given in the final chapter.Authored by leading experts, this book is ideal for statisticians in academia,research and the medical, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. |
