Comparison of designs for computer experiments. (English) Zbl 1078.62085
Summary: For many complex processes laboratory experimentation is too expensive or too time-consuming to be carried out. A practical alternative is to simulate these phenomena by a computer code. This article considers the choice of an experimental design for computer experiments. We illustrate some drawbacks to criteria that have been proposed and suggest an alternative, based on the Bayesian interpretation of the alias matrix by N. R. Draper and I. Guttman [Ann. Inst. Stat. Math. 44, 659–671 (1992; Zbl 0772.62041)]. Then we compare different design criteria by studying how they rate a variety of candidate designs for computer experiments such as Latin hypercube plans, U-designs, lattice designs and rotation designs.
