Design of Comparative Experiments
by R. A. Bailey
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2008
Number of pages: 348
This book develops a coherent framework for thinking about factors that affect experiments and their relationships, including the use of Hasse diagrams. These diagrams are used to elucidate structure, calculate degrees of freedom and allocate treatment sub-spaces to appropriate strata. Good design considers units and treatments first, and then allocates treatments to units. The book is ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses.
