Valid restricted randomization for unbalanced designs

Herv'e Monod, Rosemary Anne Bailey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sufficient conditions for strong validity of randomization are given, for designs whose block structure corresponds to an association scheme. These conditions generalize previous results for orthogonal designs and balanced designs. Applications to restricted randomization of neighbour-balanced designs are discussed.
