Balancing Context Effects by Controlled Experiments in Within-Subject Design Optimizing Condition Counterbalancing

  title={Balancing Context Effects by Controlled Experiments in Within-Subject Design Optimizing Condition Counterbalancing},
  author={T. D. Zeeuw},
To minimize the effects that occur because of condition ordering in within-subject designs, we propose a formula based on the work of Barbieri and Stinstra [1]. We implement this formula and create a program to solve the problem of creating individual orderings for each participant of a withinsubject experiment with all orderings together being balanced. This program uses a heuristic approach to bridge some of the problems that come up due to the (almost) exponential increase in the… Expand

Experimental design is reviewed here for broad classes of data collection and analysis problems, including: fractioning techniques based on orthogonal arrays, Latin hypercube designs and their variants for computer experimentation, efficient design for data mining and machine learning applications, and sequential design for active learning.

A Comparative Analysis of Selection Schemes Used in Genetic Algorithms
A number of selection schemes commonly used in modern genetic algorithms are compared on the basis of solutions to deterministic difference or differential equations, verified through computer simulations to provide convenient approximate or exact solutions and useful convergence time and growth ratio estimates.
