On the E-optimality of truncated block designs

Metrika: International Journal for Theoretical and Applied Statistics, 2002, vol. 56, issue 3, 239-245

Abstract: Sufficient conditions are found for designs, derived from completely symmetric designs by deleting binary blocks, to be E-optimal. Sufficient conditions are also found for E-optimality of designs obtained from other E-optimal designs by deleting all blocks forming a balanced incomplete block design on a subset of the treatments. The results include many binary and nonbinary designs for which E-optimality was previously unknown. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2002
