The Volume Contains the proceedings of the 9th Workshop on Model-oriented Design and Analysis. It Offers Leading and pioneerign work on optimal experimental designs, both from a theoretical point of view and in respect of real applications. Scientists from Eastern and Western Europe, the US, Asia and Africa, are contributors to this volume. Designs for nonlinear models, for discriminating between models, for multivariate data and for applications to medicine are some of the primary topics covered.
From the reviews:
"The volume is a set of 30 articles strongly connected to the talks presented at the 9th International Workshop in Model-Oriented Design and Analysis. ... It offers the model-oriented approach to optimality of designs from theoretical point of view and gives real examples in many areas of applications. ... it presents the latest trends in optimal experimental designs research. The concepts in the book are presented in a very reader-friendly way, with many examples. ... highly recommended for anyone interested in design of experiments."
