Course description

This course is taken by master students as well as PhD students. The course Spring 2012 will be lectured Tuesdays 10:00-11:45 and Thursdays 8:00-11:45 from January 17 till March 1. The lectures will be given at the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The room will be MVH11.

The written exam will take place March 6.

The Design of Experiments course approaches the problem how to plan a number of trials to obtain required information. Is it at all possible to obtain the information in question within the given resources? How valid is the information taken the model uncertainty and the scatter of the trials into account? To vary one factor at a time can be a very dangerous strategy when interactions between the factors are present.

Within the course, analysis of variance and multiple linear regression are studied in the context of factorial designs at two and more levels. Fractional factor designs, block designs, randomization and response surface methods are discussed as well.
