A Note on Small Size Augmented Pair Designs

Walter Tinsson, Universit\'{e} de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour, France

SUMMARY. This paper is devoted to small size experimental designs for response surfaces. Our first purpose is to investigate the class of augmented pair designs obtained from an initial saturated simplex design with only two or three levels. Then we are looking, in this new class of designs, for optimal configurations.

AMS (2000) subject classification. 62K20, 62K05.

Key words and phrases. Simplex designs, augmented pair designs, saturated, designs, information matrix, efficiency.
