Abstract

234 Reviews [Part 2, partially balanced incomplete block designs; the last chapter is on group-divisible, trian­ gular, and Latin square type partially balanced incomplete block designs with two associate classes. Exercises (with solutions) and examples are included throughout both books. The bibliographies, although covering only papers referred to in the text, are most useful; they contain, respectively, 109 and 131 references. The reader can find excellent supplementary lists of references, if desired, in the first issue of the 1965 Review of the International Statistical Institute. Detailed enumerative procedures are not described. Definitions are the weakest feature of Professor Vajda's volumes. The accepted definition of balanced incomplete block designs (see Fisher and Yates's Statistical Tables) does not exclude designs with sets of two or more identical blocks. Professor Vajda's restriction that no two blocks may be identical has no merit for experimental design, and would exclude such designs as one with 44 blocks, including 16 pairs of identical blocks, derived by block intersection from Shrikhande's symmetrical balanced incomplete block design with t: = b = 45.
