2 k factorial experiment.
A full factorial experiment with k factors and all factors tested at only two levels (settings) each.

`error (or `risk)
In hypothesis testing, an error incurred by rejecting a null hypothesis when it is actually true (also called a type I error).

Addition rule
A formula used to determine the probability of the union of two (or more) events from the probabilities of the events and their intersection(s).

Attribute
A qualitative characteristic of an item or unit, usually arising in quality control. For example, classifying production units as defective or nondefective results in attributes data.

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

Bayes’ theorem
An equation for a conditional probability such as PA B (  ) in terms of the reverse conditional probability PB A (  ).

Causal variable
When y fx = ( ) and y is considered to be caused by x, x is sometimes called a causal variable

Central composite design (CCD)
A secondorder response surface design in k variables consisting of a twolevel factorial, 2k axial runs, and one or more center points. The twolevel factorial portion of a CCD can be a fractional factorial design when k is large. The CCD is the most widely used design for itting a secondorder model.

Chisquare test
Any test of signiicance based on the chisquare distribution. The most common chisquare tests are (1) testing hypotheses about the variance or standard deviation of a normal distribution and (2) testing goodness of it of a theoretical distribution to sample data

Conditional probability density function
The probability density function of the conditional probability distribution of a continuous random variable.

Continuous uniform random variable
A continuous random variable with range of a inite interval and a constant probability density function.

Correlation coeficient
A dimensionless measure of the linear association between two variables, usually lying in the interval from ?1 to +1, with zero indicating the absence of correlation (but not necessarily the independence of the two variables).

Correlation matrix
A square matrix that contains the correlations among a set of random variables, say, XX X 1 2 k , ,…, . The main diagonal elements of the matrix are unity and the offdiagonal elements rij are the correlations between Xi and Xj .

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.

Discrete distribution
A probability distribution for a discrete random variable

Eficiency
A concept in parameter estimation that uses the variances of different estimators; essentially, an estimator is more eficient than another estimator if it has smaller variance. When estimators are biased, the concept requires modiication.

Error of estimation
The difference between an estimated value and the true value.

Ftest
Any test of signiicance involving the F distribution. The most common Ftests are (1) testing hypotheses about the variances or standard deviations of two independent normal distributions, (2) testing hypotheses about treatment means or variance components in the analysis of variance, and (3) testing signiicance of regression or tests on subsets of parameters in a regression model.

Generating function
A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Momentgenerating function

Goodness of fit
In general, the agreement of a set of observed values and a set of theoretical values that depend on some hypothesis. The term is often used in itting a theoretical distribution to a set of observations.
