Optimal allocation for comparing \(k\) test treatments to positive and negative control with unequal weighting under A-optimality and MV-optimality.

*(English)*Zbl 1105.62075Summary: Experiments in real life often involve comparisons of test treatments to more than one control. However, the controls may not always be of equal importance. We introduce a weighted MV optimality criterion and present a detailed study using both weighted A and MV optimality criteria for the problem of optimally comparing a set of test treatments to two controls (positive and a negative) that are of unequal importance to the experimenter.
