Title: Design of experiments with functional independent variables
Authors: David Woods - University of Southampton (United Kingdom) [presenting]
Abstract: Some novel methodology will be presented for the optimal design of experiments when at least one independent variable is a function (e.g. of time) and can be varied continuously during a single run of the experiment. Hence, finding a design becomes a question of choosing functions to define this variation for each run in the experiment. The work is motivated by, and applied to, experiments in the pharmaceutical industry.
