Higher Order Approximations
Two-level factorial or fractional factorial experimental designs are used for obtaining a first-order approximation to the response function. They are particularly useful for selecting a smaller subset of potential input factors with which to formulate a better approximation equation. In this chapter, we will discuss some classes of experimental designs useful for fitting second-order (Quadratic) approximating equations.
