A comprehensive overview of experimental design at the advancedlevel

The development and introduction of new experimental designs inthe last fifty years has been quite staggering and was broughtabout largely by an ever-widening field of applications. Design andAnalysis of Experiments, Volume 2: Advanced Experimental Design isthe second of a two-volume body of work that builds upon thephilosophical foundations of experimental design set forth half acentury ago by Oscar Kempthorne, and features the latestdevelopments in the field.

Volume 1: An Introduction to Experimental Design introducedstudents at the MS level to the principles of experimental design,including the groundbreaking work of R. A. Fisher and Frank Yates,and Kempthorne's work in randomization theory with the developmentof derived linear models. Design and Analysis of Experiments,Volume 2 provides more detail about aspects of error control andtreatment design, with emphasis on their historical development andpractical significance, and the connections between them. Designedfor advanced-level graduate students and industry professionals,this text includes coverage of:

  • Incomplete block and row-column designs
  • Symmetrical and asymmetrical factorial designs
  • Systems of confounding
  • Fractional factorial designs, including main effect plans
  • Supersaturated designs
  • Robust design or Taguchi experiments
  • Lattice designs
  • Crossover designs

In order to facilitate the application of text material to abroad range of fields, the authors take a general approach to theirdiscussions. To aid in the construction and analysis of designs,many procedures are illustrated using Statistical Analysis System(SASŪ) software.
