Peter Goos and Bradley Jones this year's winners of the Technometrics Ziegel prize
Peter Goos and Bradley Jones are this year's winners of the Technometrics Ziegel prize for their book "Optimal design of experiments: A case study approach", published by Wiley. Each year, the journal Technometrics offers a prize to the authors of the best book reviewed in the journal during the last year. The award is named after Eric Ziegel, who was the Journal's Book Review Editor for twenty years. The prize was awarded at the Joint Statistical Meetings on August 3, in Montreal, Canada.
This book puts cutting-edge optimal design of experiments techniques into the hands of the practitioner. Ten real-world design scenarios, which Goos and Jones present as consulting session conversations with clients, easily engage and absorb the reader. A behind-the-scenes look at various technical treasures accompanies each scenario.”
