Depending on the setting the function calls a combination of
to create new design candidates. The code is intentionally written modular
to allow for all special cases of the algorithm.
rsc( design_object, model, efficiency_criteria, utility, prior_values, dudx, candidate_set, rows, control )
A list of class 'spdesign' created within the
A character string indicating the model to optimize the design for. Currently the only model programmed is the 'mnl' model and this is also set as the default.
A character string giving the efficiency criteria to optimize for. One of 'a-error', 'c-error', 'd-error' or 's-error'. No default is set and argument must be specified. Optimizing for multiple criteria is not yet implemented and will result in an error.
A named list of utility functions. See the examples and the vignette for examples of how to define these correctly for different types of experimental designs.
A list of priors
A character string giving the name of the parameter in the denominator. Must be specified when optimizing for 'c-error'
A matrix or data frame in the "wide" format containing all permitted combinations of attributes. The default is NULL. If no candidate set is provided, then the full factorial subject to specified exclusions will be used.
An integer giving the number of rows in the final design
A list of control options
