Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 212)


This book is about experiments; it concerns situations where we have to organize an experiment in order to gain some information about an object of interest. Fragments of this information can be obtained by making observations within some elementary experiments called trials. We shall confound the action of making an experiment with the variables that characterize this action and use the term experimental design for both.
