One of the first texts to use R to illustrate the construction of experimental designs and analysis of data, Design and Analysis of Experiments with R covers both classical ideas in experimental design and the latest research topics. It clearly discusses the objectives of a research project that lead to an appropriate design choice, the practical aspects of creating a design and performing experiments, and the interpretation of the results of computer data analysis. It also includes many applications from the pharmaceutical, agricultural, industrial chemicals, and machinery industries. A solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.

"This is an excellent but demanding text. [...] This book should be mandatory reading for anyone teaching a course in the statistical design of experiments. [...] reading this text is likely to influence their course for the better."
