Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Axioms of probability

A set of rules that probabilities deined on a sample space must follow. See Probability

• Bernoulli trials

Sequences of independent trials with only two outcomes, generally called “success” and “failure,” in which the probability of success remains constant.

• Binomial random variable

A discrete random variable that equals the number of successes in a ixed number of Bernoulli trials.

• Bivariate distribution

The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

• Center line

A horizontal line on a control chart at the value that estimates the mean of the statistic plotted on the chart. See Control chart.

• Comparative experiment

An experiment in which the treatments (experimental conditions) that are to be studied are included in the experiment. The data from the experiment are used to evaluate the treatments.

• Confounding

When a factorial experiment is run in blocks and the blocks are too small to contain a complete replicate of the experiment, one can run a fraction of the replicate in each block, but this results in losing information on some effects. These effects are linked with or confounded with the blocks. In general, when two factors are varied such that their individual effects cannot be determined separately, their effects are said to be confounded.

• Continuity correction.

A correction factor used to improve the approximation to binomial probabilities from a normal distribution.

• Continuous distribution

A probability distribution for a continuous random variable.

• Control chart

A graphical display used to monitor a process. It usually consists of a horizontal center line corresponding to the in-control value of the parameter that is being monitored and lower and upper control limits. The control limits are determined by statistical criteria and are not arbitrary, nor are they related to speciication limits. If sample points fall within the control limits, the process is said to be in-control, or free from assignable causes. Points beyond the control limits indicate an out-of-control process; that is, assignable causes are likely present. This signals the need to ind and remove the assignable causes.

• Control limits

See Control chart.

• Curvilinear regression

An expression sometimes used for nonlinear regression models or polynomial regression models.

• Defect concentration diagram

A quality tool that graphically shows the location of defects on a part or in a process.

• Degrees of freedom.

The number of independent comparisons that can be made among the elements of a sample. The term is analogous to the number of degrees of freedom for an object in a dynamic system, which is the number of independent coordinates required to determine the motion of the object.

• Deming

W. Edwards Deming (1900–1993) was a leader in the use of statistical quality control.

• Density function

Another name for a probability density function

• Design matrix

A matrix that provides the tests that are to be conducted in an experiment.

• Discrete uniform random variable

A discrete random variable with a inite range and constant probability mass function.

• Dispersion

The amount of variability exhibited by data

• Harmonic mean

The harmonic mean of a set of data values is the reciprocal of the arithmetic mean of the reciprocals of the data values; that is, h n x i n i = ? ? ? ? ? = ? ? 1 1 1 1 g .
