Design and Analysis of Experiments
Volume 3, Special Designs and ApplicationseBook - 2012
Design and Analysis of Experiments, Volume 3: Special Designsand Applications continues building upon the philosophicalfoundations of experimental design by providing important, modernapplications of experimental design to the many fields that utilizethem. The book also presents optimal and efficient designs forpractice and covers key topics in current statistical research.
Featuring contributions from leading researchers and academics,the book demonstrates how the presented concepts are used acrossvarious fields from genetics and medicinal and pharmaceuticalresearch to manufacturing, engineering, and national security. Eachchapter includes an introduction followed by the historicalbackground as well as in-depth procedures that aid in theconstruction and analysis of the discussed designs. Topicalcoverage includes:
Genetic cross experiments, microarray experiments, and varietytrials
Clinical trials, group-sequential designs, and adaptivedesigns
Fractional factorial and search, choice, and optimal designs forgeneralized linear models
Computer experiments with applications to homeland security
Robust parameter designs and split-plot type response surfacedesigns
Analysis of directional data experiments
Throughout the book, illustrative and numerical examples utilizeSAS®, JMP®, and R software programs to demonstrate thediscussed techniques. Related data sets and software applicationsare available on the book's related FTP site.
Design and Analysis of Experiments, Volume 3 is an idealtextbook for graduate courses in experimental design and alsoserves as a practical, hands-on reference for statisticians andresearchers across a wide array of subject areas, includingbiological sciences, engineering, medicine, and business.
