|Title:||Uniform semi-Latin squares|
Semi-Latin squares generalise Latin squares, and are used in the design of comparative experiments. My talk, including joint work with R.A. Bailey, will focus on uniform semi-Latin squares, which generalise complete sets of mutually orthogonal Latin squares and have excellent statistical optimality properties. I will discuss the construction and properties of uniform semi-Latin squares, including connections with group theory, computation, and other types of combinatorial designs. This talk should be accessible to a general mathematical audience.
