design.alpha {agricolae}R Documentation

Alpha design type (0,1)

Description

Generates an alpha designs starting from the alpha design fixing under the series formulated by Patterson and Williams. These designs are generated by the alpha arrangements. They are similar to the lattice designs, but the tables are rectangular s by k (with s blocks and k<s columns. The number of treatments should be equal to s*k and all the experimental units r*s*k (r replications).

Usage

design.alpha(trt, k, r, serie = 2, seed = 0, kinds = "Super-Duper",randomization=TRUE)

Arguments

Details

Parameters for the alpha design: I. r=2, k <= s; II. r=3, s odd, k <= s; III.r=3, s even, k <= s-1; IV. r=4, s odd but not a multiple of 3, k<=s
