Synergistic Effects in the Analysis of Variance.
Burrill, Donald F.
Techniques for detecting synergistic effects in analysis of variance designs are presented and discussed. These techniques make it possible to apply some kinds of theoretical insights to the data analysis phase of a study: either by seeking synergistic effects implied or predicted by theory, or by seeking evidence of synergies as alternative explanations for results which would otherwise imply the existence of interactions where theory would deny such interactions. In complex factorial designs particularly, where high-order interactions are often called "uninterpretable," these techniques may often permit more appealing explanations and interpretations of the experimental results.
