Additivity property of x 2
If two independent random variables X1 and X2 are distributed as chisquare with v1 and v2 degrees of freedom, respectively, Y = + X X 1 2 is a chisquare random variable with u = + v v 1 2 degrees of freedom. This generalizes to any number of independent chisquare random variables.

Average
See Arithmetic mean.

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

Bernoulli trials
Sequences of independent trials with only two outcomes, generally called “success” and “failure,” in which the probability of success remains constant.

Bivariate distribution
The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

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

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

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.

Crossed factors
Another name for factors that are arranged in a factorial experiment.

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

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.

Empirical model
A model to relate a response to one or more regressors or factors that is developed from data obtained from the system.

Exhaustive
A property of a collection of events that indicates that their union equals the sample space.

Extra sum of squares method
A method used in regression analysis to conduct a hypothesis test for the additional contribution of one or more variables to 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.

Firstorder model
A model that contains only irstorder terms. For example, the irstorder response surface model in two variables is y xx = + ?? ? ? 0 11 2 2 + + . A irstorder model is also called a main effects 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.

Fraction defective
In statistical quality control, that portion of a number of units or the output of a process that is defective.

Fraction defective control chart
See P chart

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