Lecture Series On The Design and Analysis of Experiments
By Dr. Tonghui Wang Hoji Scholar and Professor
Northwest A and F University and New Mexico State University
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the design and analysis of the experiments. It is for the upper level undergraduate and graduate course for majors in applied statistics and other applied mathematical sciences, natural sciences, business, health sciences, social sciences, and engineering. It is assumed that the students have completed the course in probability and statistical inference. The emphasis is more on design than what one usually finds at this level as it is virtually no way that use of sophisticated statistical techniques can compensate for poorly acquired data. The fundamental goal of a well-designed experiment is to minimize the variation (error) of a response variable that cannot be attributed to a known change of the condition.
