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.
