Two minimax "regret" criteria for global optimality of designs in terms of estimation of the entire regression function are shown to be equivalent to minimizing the generalized variance. (The equivalence for the minimax criterion without modification was proved by Kiefer and Wolfowitz .) A consequent algorithm which is helpful in computing optimum designs is given.
