blocksdesign: Nested Block Designs for Unstructured Treatments

Nested block designs for unstructured treatment sets where blocks can be repeatedly nested and treatments can have different levels of replication. Blocks strata are optimized hierarchically with each set of nested blocks optimized within the levels of the preceding set. Block sizes are equal if the number of blocks exactly divides the number of plots, otherwise they differ by at most one plot. The design output is a data table giving a randomised allocation of treatments to blocks together with a plan table showing treatments in blocks and a set of blocks-by-treatments incidence matrices, one for each blocks stratum.
