AbstractWe present a brief review of classical experimental design in the spirit of algebraic statistics. Notion of identifiability, aliasing and estimability of linear parametric functions, confounding are expressed in relation to a set of polynomials identified by the design, called the design ideal. An effort has been made to indicate the classical linear algebra counterpart of the objects of interest in the polynomial space, and to indicate how the algebraic statistics approach generalizes the classical theory. In the second part of this chapter we address new questions: a seemingly limitation of the algebraic approach is discussed and resolved in the ideas of minimal and maximal fan designs, again generalizing classical notions; an algorithm is provided to switch between two major representations of a design, one of which uses Gröbner bases and the other one uses indicator functions. Finally, all the theory in the chapter is applied and extended to the class of mixture designs which present a challenging structure and questions.
