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).

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

Assignable cause
The portion of the variability in a set of observations that can be traced to speciic causes, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a special cause.

Bias
An effect that systematically distorts a statistical result or estimate, preventing it from representing the true quantity of interest.

Bimodal distribution.
A distribution with two modes

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.

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

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

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

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

Dependent variable
The response variable in regression or a designed experiment.

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

Designed experiment
An experiment in which the tests are planned in advance and the plans usually incorporate statistical models. See Experiment

Erlang random variable
A continuous random variable that is the sum of a ixed number of independent, exponential random variables.

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.

Forward selection
A method of variable selection in regression, where variables are inserted one at a time into the model until no other variables that contribute signiicantly to the model can be found.

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.

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

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