Optimal Designs in the Presence of Random Block Effects

  • Peter Goos
Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 164)


There are many experimental situations in which the experimental runs cannot be carried out under homogeneous conditions. For a more powerful analysis in these cases, the experiment is blocked so that each block is a homogeneous set of experimental units. In this chapter, it is assumed that the blocks are random and, hence, that the observations belonging to the same block are correlated.
