Randomisation

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

Abstract

Randomization was one of four key elements in R.A.Fisher's discussion of experimental design. There have always been controversial aspects to it; Student seems never to have accepted its desirability and some personalistic Bayesians have argued that it is at best unnecessary and typically harmful. After some brief historical remarks and a review of the purposes of randomization in different contexts some open issues, including the relation with conditional inference, are discussed.
