Applied Optimal Designs
An accurate statistical inference and minimum cost is the basic feature of well designed study so it has become prominent need to evaluate the cost of scientific study without sacrificing accuracy of the statistical inference. This book emphasize on the application of the optimal designs to ensure proper allocation of resources to meet the objectives of the study.
It is helpful to know about the advantages of the experimental optimal design in fields of applied science for the researchers and practitioners. It is unique book that has combined the application of these optimal designs for the real problems to achieve required objectives. Author has catalogue the application of these designs for documenting there widespread use in disciplines like drug development, education and water modeling.
It contains the various references of the real optimal designs such as Bayesian design for measuring cerebral blood flow, designs for biological models, computer adaptive testing, ground water modeling and both epidemiological and pharmacological studies models. Author has adopted integrated approach of theory and practical to make student understand about these optimal designs for the various disciplines.
