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.

Alternative hypothesis
In statistical hypothesis testing, this is a hypothesis other than the one that is being tested. The alternative hypothesis contains feasible conditions, whereas the null hypothesis speciies conditions that are under test

Analytic study
A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to a future population. Stability needs to be assumed. See Enumerative study

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

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

Biased estimator
Unbiased estimator.

Causal variable
When y fx = ( ) and y is considered to be caused by x, x is sometimes called a causal variable

Causeandeffect diagram
A chart used to organize the various potential causes of a problem. Also called a ishbone diagram.

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

Continuous distribution
A probability distribution for a continuous random variable.

Control chart
A graphical display used to monitor a process. It usually consists of a horizontal center line corresponding to the incontrol value of the parameter that is being monitored and lower and upper control limits. The control limits are determined by statistical criteria and are not arbitrary, nor are they related to speciication limits. If sample points fall within the control limits, the process is said to be incontrol, or free from assignable causes. Points beyond the control limits indicate an outofcontrol process; that is, assignable causes are likely present. This signals the need to ind and remove the assignable causes.

Correlation coeficient
A dimensionless measure of the linear association between two variables, usually lying in the interval from ?1 to +1, with zero indicating the absence of correlation (but not necessarily the independence of the two variables).

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 .

Defectsperunit control chart
See U chart

Discrete distribution
A probability distribution for a discrete random variable

Enumerative study
A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to the population. See Analytic study

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

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.
