Multifactor Experiments

Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)


In practice, for most designed experiments it can be assumed that the response Y is not only dependent on a single variable but on a whole group of prognostic factors. If these variables are continuous, their influence on the response is taken into account by so–called factor levels. These are ranges (e.g., low, medium, high) that classify the continuous variables as ordinal variables. In Sections 1.7 and 1.8, we have already cited examples for designed experiments where the dependence of a response on two factors was to be examined.
