As far as Iunderstand, these 2 boundaries require equal spacing between interim analyses(maybe this is not correct?). But I can still use gsDesign to run an analysisbased on unequal spacing: gsDesign(k=2,test.type=2,timing=c(0.75,1),alpha=0.05,sfu='Pocock')Symmetrictwo-sided group sequential design with90 %power and 5 % Type I Error.Spendingcomputations assume trial stops if a bound is crossed.

Or for unequal spacing, I have to use Lan-Demet’s error spendingfunction approximations? Thank you,

Your example code is a complete mess.
