Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)


In this chapter we introduce the latin square design. This design is used to take account of two sources of variation between the experimental units, in an orthogonal fashion. In practice, the design is not widely used. However, we include it in this book since it illuminates the ideas of orthogonal blocking in a very elegant manner.
