Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• `-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).

A formula used to determine the probability of the union of two (or more) events from the probabilities of the events and their intersection(s).

• 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

• 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

• Average run length, or ARL

The average number of samples taken in a process monitoring or inspection scheme until the scheme signals that the process is operating at a level different from the level in which it began.

• Bivariate normal distribution

The joint distribution of two normal random variables

• 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 .

• Combination.

A subset selected without replacement from a set used to determine the number of outcomes in events and sample spaces.

• Conditional probability density function

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

• Consistent estimator

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

• 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).

• Counting techniques

Formulas used to determine the number of elements in sample spaces and events.

• Cumulative normal distribution function

The cumulative distribution of the standard normal distribution, often denoted as ?( ) x and tabulated in Appendix Table II.

• Defects-per-unit control chart

See U chart

• Deining relation

A subset of effects in a fractional factorial design that deine the aliases in the design.

• Discrete uniform random variable

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

• Erlang random variable

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

• 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 model-itting process and not on replication.

• False alarm

A signal from a control chart when no assignable causes are present
