Abstract:

This paper studies the class of augmented balanced incomplete block designs, which are used for comparing a control treatment with a set of test treatments. Under the A criterion a condition is established that enables us to determine the most efficient augmented design and we suggest some methods to compute a lower bound for the efficiency of these designs. For 3 or k or k the parameters of the most efficient designs with a lower bound for their efficiency or, if known, mention their optimality.
