Abstract:

In the presence of white noise, randomization is a powerful tool in the design of an experiment where the purpose of the experiment is to accept or reject one or more hypotheses. Randomization allows the experimentor to eliminate the influence of uncontrollable biases or trends upon the results of the experiment. In the presence of colored noise, however, the use of randomization may have a catastrophic effect upon the results of the hypothesis testing. The effects of several common randomization schemes upon the variance ratio test F-test are investigated under the assumption the noise is autocorrelated. Detailed results are presented by using a linear first-order Markov noise model in each randomization scheme. Author
