 OFFSET 3,2 COMMENTS Each set has n-1 orthogonal contrasts. REFERENCES Doncaster, C. P. & Davey, A. J. H. (2007) Analysis of Variance and Covariance: How to Choose and Construct Models for the Life Sciences. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=3..32. C. P. Doncaster, Contrast sets C. P. Doncaster, Orthogonal contrasts C. P. Doncaster & A. J. H. Davey, Analysis of Variance and Covariance FORMULA For n=5,6,7: a(n) = -mod(n,2)*a([n-mod{n,2}]/2) + sum_{k=3..n-1} a[k] For n>7: a(n) = -mod(n,2)*a([n-mod{n,2}]/2) + 2*a(n-1) + b(n) - b(n-1) where b(m) = 0^mod(log(m,2),1) + mod(m-1,2)*0.5*a([m-mod{m,2}]/2)*(a[{m-mod(m,2)}/2]-1) + sum_{k=3..(m-1-mod[m-1,2])/2} a(m-k)*(a[k]-1) EXAMPLE A factor 'A' with n = 5 levels, has a(5) = 4 alternative sets of orthogonal contrasts, each with n - 1 = 4 contrasts. The corresponding alternative general linear models describing contrasts 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E' are: B + C(B) + D(B) + E(D B) B + C(B) + D(C B) + E(D C B) B + C(B) + D(C B) + E(C B) B + C(B) + D(B) + E(B) CROSSREFS Sequence in context: A337438 A007486 A027977 * A293781 A202025 A227615 Adjacent sequences: A165435 A165436 A165437 * A165439 A165440 A165441 KEYWORD nonn AUTHOR C.
