Equally it is true that algorithms analogous to those of Chapter 4 can be used to construct

4, can only yield an optimal measure in a finite number of steps if the probabilities assigned by an optimal measure are rational numbers. In this respect too the example chosen was favourable to it. 4, whatever choice of '10 had been made neither the V- nor the W-algorithm would ever have introduced an x other than x(1) or X(2)' This is because of the convexity on f( of Fq,(M, XXT), mentioned above. Now it does often happen that F",(M, xx T ) is a convex function of x on convex subsets of Rk. However f( is not always a convex set and even if it is, not all of its extreme points are necessarily optimal design support points.

If N» I we can approximate each '7 ... i by a number '7i = rdN, where each ri is an integer and I ri = N. Then the design measure '7 is close to '7 ... and it is of course the design measure corresponding to the N-observation design according to which we 37 OPTIMAL DESIGN take ri observations at xli) , i = 1, ... , I. This N-observation design must then be at least close to a best one. It is not difficult to devise systematic ways of approximating ". in this way; see Fedorov (1972, p. 157). However if N is not large relative to I then often any approximating" obtained in this way will not be all that close to " •.
