Randomization and Design: I

  • Norton Holschuh
Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 1)


This first lecture on R.A. Fisher’s work in the area of design and analysis of experiments focusses primarily on the principles explained in his landmark 1935 book The Design of Experiments [DOE]. To highlight important issues in randomization theory, Fisher’s Initial controversy with Neyman and his rarely-heard opinion on the problem of undesirable random assignments will also be briefly reviewed.
