Adjusted R 2
A variation of the R 2 statistic that compensates for the number of parameters in a regression model. Essentially, the adjustment is a penalty for increasing the number of parameters in the model. Alias. In a fractional factorial experiment when certain factor effects cannot be estimated uniquely, they are said to be aliased.

Backward elimination
A method of variable selection in regression that begins with all of the candidate regressor variables in the model and eliminates the insigniicant regressors one at a time until only signiicant regressors remain

Box plot (or box and whisker plot)
A graphical display of data in which the box contains the middle 50% of the data (the interquartile range) with the median dividing it, and the whiskers extend to the smallest and largest values (or some deined lower and upper limits).

Chance cause
The portion of the variability in a set of observations that is due to only random forces and which cannot be traced to speciic sources, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a common cause.

Coeficient of determination
See R 2 .

Conditional variance.
The variance of the conditional probability distribution of a random variable.

Conidence interval
If it is possible to write a probability statement of the form PL U ( ) ? ? ? ? = ?1 where L and U are functions of only the sample data and ? is a parameter, then the interval between L and U is called a conidence interval (or a 100 1( )% ? ? conidence interval). The interpretation is that a statement that the parameter ? lies in this interval will be true 100 1( )% ? ? of the times that such a statement is made

Consistent estimator
An estimator that converges in probability to the true value of the estimated parameter as the sample size increases.

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 .

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

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

Deming’s 14 points.
A management philosophy promoted by W. Edwards Deming that emphasizes the importance of change and quality

Discrete distribution
A probability distribution for a discrete random variable

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

Error variance
The variance of an error term or component in a model.

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.

Fractional factorial experiment
A type of factorial experiment in which not all possible treatment combinations are run. This is usually done to reduce the size of an experiment with several factors.

Gamma function
A function used in the probability density function of a gamma random variable that can be considered to extend factorials

Geometric random variable
A discrete random variable that is the number of Bernoulli trials until a success occurs.

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 .
