Nguyen's Orthogonal Latin Hypercube Designs


Generate the Orthogonal Latin Hypercube (OLH) designs proposed by Nguyen in 2008. These OLHs have a latin structure, an orthogonality between the main terms and the interactions (+ squares) and low correlations between the interactions (+ squares). Very larges matrices can be obtained as the number of input variables and hence the number of lines is unconstrained. When the number of input variables is a power of 2, OLHs have d columns and n = 2d + 1 lines (experiments). A vertical truncature is applied when the number of input variables is not a power of 2. Various normalizations can be applied.


olhDesign(dimension, range = c(0, 1))



number of input variables


the scale (min and max) of the inputs. Ranges (0, 0) and (1, 1) are special cases and call integer ranges (-d, d) and (0, 2d). See the examples


A list with components:


the number of lines/experiments


the number of columns/input variables


the design of experiments

## Classical normalizations
olhDesign(4, range = c(0, 0))
olhDesign(4, range = c(1, 1))
olhDesign(4, range = c(0, 1))
olhDesign(4, range = c(-1, 1))

## Change the dimnames, adjust to range (-10, 10) and round to 2 digits
xDRDN(olhDesign(4), letter = "T", dgts = 2, range = c(-10, 10))
