`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).

Attribute control chart
Any control chart for a discrete random variable. See Variables control chart.

Average
See Arithmetic mean.

Biased estimator
Unbiased estimator.

Bivariate distribution
The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

Chisquare (or chisquared) random variable
A continuous random variable that results from the sum of squares of independent standard normal random variables. It is a special case of a gamma random variable.

Coeficient of determination
See R 2 .

Conditional probability
The probability of an event given that the random experiment produces an outcome in another event.

Conditional probability distribution
The distribution of a random variable given that the random experiment produces an outcome in an event. The given event might specify values for one or more other random variables

Conidence level
Another term for the conidence coeficient.

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

Contrast
A linear function of treatment means with coeficients that total zero. A contrast is a summary of treatment means that is of interest in an experiment.

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

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.

Distribution free method(s)
Any method of inference (hypothesis testing or conidence interval construction) that does not depend on the form of the underlying distribution of the observations. Sometimes called nonparametric method(s).

Expected value
The expected value of a random variable X is its longterm average or mean value. In the continuous case, the expected value of X is E X xf x dx ( ) = ?? ( ) ? ? where f ( ) x is the density function of the random variable X.

Fraction defective control chart
See P chart

Geometric mean.
The geometric mean of a set of n positive data values is the nth root of the product of the data values; that is, g x i n i n = ( ) = / w 1 1 .

Hat matrix.
In multiple regression, the matrix H XXX X = ( ) ? ? 1 . This a projection matrix that maps the vector of observed response values into a vector of itted values by yˆ = = X X X X y Hy ( ) ? ? ?1 .
