Recent Development of the Uniform Design

Abstract: The uniform design (UD) has been widely use in various fields since 1978. Its theory has been systematically developed in the past decades. In this talk I shall focus on the development of the uniform design in several aspects, such as lower bounds of the discrepancy, construction of uniform designs, uniform minimum aberration designs and applications of the uniformity in other designs including the fractional factorial design and supersaturated design.
