Design of Experiments

Part of the Understanding Complex Systems book series (UCS)


Latin squares and hypercubes are obtained as solutions of the wave equation.

Multivariate modeling potential for evolvable designs of experiments is evaluated.

The general PSM framework is presented as flexible guideline for a large variety of designs of experiments.

Case studies refer to pharmaceutical pipeline, to drug discovery and development and to printed circuits quality evaluations. New informational entropy criteria have been applied for 2-phenylindole derivatives library design.
