Abstract

Power Analysis starts by asking: what is statistical power and why is low power undesirable? It then moves on to considering ways in which we can improve the power of an experiment. It asks how we can quantify power by simulation. It also examines simple factorial designs and extensions to other designs. Next, it asks how we can deal with multiple hypotheses. Finally, it looks at how to apply the simulation approach presented in this book beyond null hypothesis testing.
