Revising and updating a volume that represents the essential source on building empirical models, George Box and Norman Draper-renowned authorities in this field-continue to set the standard with the Second Edition of Response Surfaces, Mixtures, and Ridge Analyses, providing timely new techniques, new exercises and expanded material. A comprehensive introduction to building empirical models, this book presents the general philosophy and computational details of a number of important topics, including factorial designs at two levels; fitting first and second-order models; adequacy of estimation and the use of transformation and occurrence and elucidation of ridge systems.
