Nearly optimal covariate designs—Part I
Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods
We propose to discuss at length several examples from standard text books. All of these examples deal with analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) models and related analyses of data. We intend to capitalize on our understanding of optimal covariate designs (OCDs) in different ANCOVA models and re-visit these examples with a view to suggest optimal/nearly optimal designs for estimation of the covariate parameter(s). As we will see, for some examples our task is very much routine but for others, it is indeed a highly non trivial exercise. We intent to cover a total of six examples—divided in two parts. This is Part I—dealing with two examples.
