design of experiments

the planning of an experiment so that the results will provide evidence to support, refute or modify the particular hypothesis which is being tested. For example, any experiment which involves sampling should be planned in such a way that the results are sufficient to allow proper statistical testing.

Participants also have the opportunity to participate in special-topic workshops that cover topics like writing research proposals and designing experiments; to receive training in responsible conduct of research, laboratory safety and professional public presentation skills; and to report their findings at local, regional and national meetings at the high school and college levels.
Using small shrimp-like crustaceans called amphipods, which are commonly used to monitor environmental toxicology, the researchers have been designing experiments to best answer the questions.
Discussing probability and statistics needed by physicists and engineers, they cover random phenomena, probability, random variables, expected values, commonly used discrete distributions, commonly used density functions, joint distributions, some multivariate distributions, a collection of random variables, sampling distributions, estimation, interval estimation, tests of statistical hypotheses, model building and regression, and designing experiments and analyzing variance.
She also discusses how to determine function and classify items, the attributes of grinding technology, concepts related to use-wear analysis, research that can be conducted with data derived from technological analyses, resources for modeling ground stone tool use, and guidelines for designing experiments. This edition includes advances in scientific analysis and developments in ethnographic and experimental research, as well as international work using a technological approach to ground stone analysis.
Designing experiments and analyzing the results using DOE can be time consuming and error prone when manual methods are used.
Evolutionary biologist Stefan Van Dongen of the University of Antwerp in Belgium says the possibility that animals can hide symmetry flaws "is something to take into account when designing experiments." He adds, however, that he'd like to see a test of whether male guppies showing their better sides father more offspring.

Shea's DESIGNING EXPERIMENTS & GAMES OF CHANCE: THE UNCONVENTIONAL SCIENCE OF BLAISE PASCAL (0881353760, $39.95) tells of a man equally interested in math, physics and religion: while his name is most commonly associated with math, here a more well-rounded survey of his other contributions blend in an examination of his experiments to show a vacuum can be produced.
Readers will realize the struggle of designing experiments early on with an emerging technology.
