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

All possible (subsets) regressions
A method of variable selection in regression that examines all possible subsets of the candidate regressor variables. Eficient computer algorithms have been developed for implementing all possible regressions

Arithmetic mean
The arithmetic mean of a set of numbers x1 , x2 ,…, xn is their sum divided by the number of observations, or ( / )1 1 n xi t n ? = . The arithmetic mean is usually denoted by x , and is often called the average

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

Bimodal distribution.
A distribution with two modes

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).

Categorical data
Data consisting of counts or observations that can be classiied into categories. The categories may be descriptive.

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.

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.

Continuous random variable.
A random variable with an interval (either inite or ininite) of real numbers for its range.

Covariance
A measure of association between two random variables obtained as the expected value of the product of the two random variables around their means; that is, Cov(X Y, ) [( )( )] =? ? E X Y ? ? X Y .

Covariance matrix
A square matrix that contains the variances and covariances among a set of random variables, say, X1 , X X 2 k , , … . The main diagonal elements of the matrix are the variances of the random variables and the offdiagonal elements are the covariances between Xi and Xj . Also called the variancecovariance matrix. When the random variables are standardized to have unit variances, the covariance matrix becomes the correlation matrix.

Cumulative distribution function
For a random variable X, the function of X deined as PX x ( ) ? that is used to specify the probability distribution.

Error sum of squares
In analysis of variance, this is the portion of total variability that is due to the random component in the data. It is usually based on replication of observations at certain treatment combinations in the experiment. It is sometimes called the residual sum of squares, although this is really a better term to use only when the sum of squares is based on the remnants of a modelitting process and not on replication.

Estimate (or point estimate)
The numerical value of a point estimator.

F distribution.
The distribution of the random variable deined as the ratio of two independent chisquare random variables, each divided by its number of degrees of freedom.

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.

Gaussian distribution
Another name for the normal distribution, based on the strong connection of Karl F. Gauss to the normal distribution; often used in physics and electrical engineering applications

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

Generator
Effects in a fractional factorial experiment that are used to construct the experimental tests used in the experiment. The generators also deine the aliases.
