rsm: Response-Surface Analysis

Provides functions to generate response-surface designs, fit first- and second-order response-surface models, make surface plots, obtain the path of steepest ascent, and do canonical analysis. A good reference on these methods is Chapter 10 of Wu, C-F J and Hamada, M (2009) "Experiments: Planning, Analysis, and Parameter Design Optimization" ISBN 978-0-471-69946-0. An early version of the package is documented in Journal of Statistical Software <doi:10.18637/jss.v032.i07>.
