Levitin An isomorphism between the fractional factorial experiment and error correcting codes helps unravel the concept of a design’s resolution and the logic of alias structures. Once a resolution is decided on, inequalities from the study of error correcting codes provide optimality criteria for design selection. This criterion leads to a “paradoxical,” outcome: The resolution of a fractional factorial design can be maintained with a smaller experiment by increasing the number of levels.  Under the direction of  Dr. Robert Fountain https://pdx.zoom.us/j/89263044111 Kathie Leck Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics + Statistics Kathie Leck Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics + Statistics America/Los_Angeles public
