    ABSTRACT: “It is the primary purpose of this book to present the fundamental concepts in the design of experiments using simple numerical problems, many from actual research work. These problems are selected to emphasize the basic philosophy of design. Another purpose is to present a logical sequence of designs that fit into a consistent outline: for every type of experiments, the distinctions among the experiment, the design, and the analyses are emphasized” (from the preface). The monograph, now in its revised and extended 4th edition, neatly meets its purposes of an introductory textbook on the analysis and design of experiments (see Zbl 0301.62043 for the review of the 2nd edition from 1973). The book starts with two introductory chapters on the principles of model–oriented data analysis, which the author calls the experiment–design–analysis theme. The following chapters deal with various experimental settings of increasing complexity: single factor experiments, randomized block designs, fixed and random effects, nested experiments, two or more factors (including full and fractional factorials), split–plot designs, Taguchi approach, regression, and some miscellaneous topics (including covariance analysis, response–surface methodology, attribute data, and randomized incomplete blocks). The topics are illustrated by elaborated examples, and each chapter is augmented by a summary on the experiment–design–analysis relationship and by a large number of partly solved problems. Compared to the previous edition, additional topics have been included like the Taguchi methodology. The main new feature, however, is a basic introduction to the use of the Statistical Analysis System (SAS) package. Computer programs written in SAS have been added to most of the examples.
