2 k p  factorial experiment
A fractional factorial experiment with k factors tested in a 2 ? p fraction with all factors tested at only two levels (settings) each

Analysis of variance (ANOVA)
A method of decomposing the total variability in a set of observations, as measured by the sum of the squares of these observations from their average, into component sums of squares that are associated with speciic deined sources of variation

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

Central composite design (CCD)
A secondorder response surface design in k variables consisting of a twolevel factorial, 2k axial runs, and one or more center points. The twolevel factorial portion of a CCD can be a fractional factorial design when k is large. The CCD is the most widely used design for itting a secondorder model.

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

Continuity correction.
A correction factor used to improve the approximation to binomial probabilities from a normal distribution.

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

Critical value(s)
The value of a statistic corresponding to a stated signiicance level as determined from the sampling distribution. For example, if PZ z PZ ( )( .) . ? =? = 0 025 . 1 96 0 025, then z0 025 . = 1 9. 6 is the critical value of z at the 0.025 level of signiicance. Crossed factors. Another name for factors that are arranged in a factorial experiment.

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

Deming
W. Edwards Deming (1900–1993) was a leader in the use of statistical quality control.

Density function
Another name for a probability density function

Discrete random variable
A random variable with a inite (or countably ininite) range.

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

Error of estimation
The difference between an estimated value and the true value.

Error propagation
An analysis of how the variance of the random variable that represents that output of a system depends on the variances of the inputs. A formula exists when the output is a linear function of the inputs and the formula is simpliied if the inputs are assumed to be independent.

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

Exponential random variable
A series of tests in which changes are made to the system under study

Frequency distribution
An arrangement of the frequencies of observations in a sample or population according to the values that the observations take on

Gamma random variable
A random variable that generalizes an Erlang random variable to noninteger values of the parameter r

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