About the Authors
  • Design of Comparative Experiments develops a coherent framework for thinking about factors that affect experiments and their relationships, including the use of Hasse diagrams. These diagrams are used to elucidate structure, calculate degrees of freedom and allocate treatment sub-spaces to appropriate strata. Good design considers units and treatments first, and then allocates treatments to units. Based on a one-term course the author has taught since 1989, the book is ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses. This book should be on the shelf of every practicing statistician who designs experiments.

    • Authoritative: Bailey is, without question, one of the foremost experts on experimental design
    • Fit for purpose: emphasis is on choosing a design to answer the research question at hand rather than on analysis of a given design
    • Real-life: examples are taken from real experiments, based on the author's experience

    "... a carefully planned, well-organized [manner]. Using very simple language, Bailey makes every effort to make this book enjoyable to read, and to bring appreciation to and a deep understanding of the concepts and issues in experimental designs."
    D.V. Chopra, Wichita State University for Choice Magazine
