Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 2 k factorial experiment.

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

• Attribute control chart

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

• Bivariate normal distribution

The joint distribution of two normal random variables

• Central tendency

The tendency of data to cluster around some value. Central tendency is usually expressed by a measure of location such as the mean, median, or mode.

• Combination.

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

• Conidence level

Another term for the conidence coeficient.

• 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.

• Counting techniques

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

• 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 .

• Deining relation

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

• Density function

Another name for a probability density function

• Designed experiment

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

• Discrete distribution

A probability distribution for a discrete random variable

• Discrete uniform random variable

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

• Dispersion

The amount of variability exhibited by data

• Error variance

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

• Expected value

The expected value of a random variable X is its long-term average or mean value. In the continuous case, the expected value of X is E X xf x dx ( ) = ?? ( ) ? ? where f ( ) x is the density function of the random variable X.

• False alarm

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

• 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

• Goodness of fit

In general, the agreement of a set of observed values and a set of theoretical values that depend on some hypothesis. The term is often used in itting a theoretical distribution to a set of observations.
