The paper introduces a class of experimental designs that allows
experimenters to control the robustness and efficiency of their experiments.
The designs build on a recently introduced algorithm in discrepancy theory, the
Gram-Schmidt walk. We...
Cyrus SamiiThis is an extraordinary paper on optimal experimental design by Harshaw et al. By representing an experimental design as a quadratic form with the treatment covariance matrix, you can derive very general results from spectral theory
