Average c-Efficiency

by Charles F. Dunkl and Donald E. Ramirez .

Abstract: This paper introduces, for an experimental design with design matrix X, the optimal design criterion ACE based on the integrated average of the standard errors for tests H:u'b=0, where the distribution of u satisfies a normal distribution with mean 0 and with a user specified dispersion matrix. When the dispersion matrix is the identity matrix, the criterion is equivalent to the integrated average of the standard errors with u uniformly distributed over the sphere.

Key Words: optimal design, ACE, expected radius, points of influence, integrated average, ellipsoids.
