Title: Design of Exsperiments for Non-Linear Models

Abstract: Experimental design problems when the response is a function which is non-linear with respect to the unknown parameters will be discussed. As in linear models, here too, the chosen design can make a difference to the precision of the estimated parameters. Various criteria can be used to optimize the choice of design depending on the particular practical problem.
Similarly, when there is more than one alternative model, an optimum design for model discrimination may help in making decisions about which model to choose as the most appropriate one.
Theoretical background for optimum design for model discrimination and parameter estimation will be presented and supported by the examples from chemistry and drug development. Properties of such designs will be presented and the problems in obtaining optimum designs (coming from the non-linearity of the model) will be discussed.
