On Minimal-Point Designs
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
A minimal-point design has its number of experimental runs equals to the number of parameters. This is the minimal effort possible to obtain an unbiased estimate for all parameters. Some recent advances for minimal-point design under various models will be discussed. Specifically, a new class of minimal-point design robust to interactions for first-order model is proposed; a new class of minimal-point design, making use of Conference Matrices, for definitive screening will be explored, and if time permits, new minimal-point designs for full second-order response surface models will be discussed.
A related issue on the construction of conference matrix and its applications in design of experiment will be introduced.
