Optimal design of experiments is a discipline of mathematical statistics that deals with methods of planning of an experiment in order to obtain as much information as possible within specified constraints on available resources, or to ensure the required data quality at the lowest possible cost. The results of the research in this discipline are applicable in empirical sciences, medicine, industry, agriculture, but also, e.g., in population surveys. The founder of the school of optimal design of experiments at FMPI is prof. RNDr. Andrej Pázman, DrSc., who is also one of the leading figures in this field of research from the global perspective.
