Bayes’ theorem
An equation for a conditional probability such as PA B (  ) in terms of the reverse conditional probability PB A (  ).

Biased estimator
Unbiased estimator.

Bivariate distribution
The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

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

Conditional probability mass function
The probability mass function of the conditional probability distribution of a discrete random variable.

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

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

Cook’s distance
In regression, Cook’s distance is a measure of the inluence of each individual observation on the estimates of the regression model parameters. It expresses the distance that the vector of model parameter estimates with the ith observation removed lies from the vector of model parameter estimates based on all observations. Large values of Cook’s distance indicate that the observation is inluential.

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.

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

Deming’s 14 points.
A management philosophy promoted by W. Edwards Deming that emphasizes the importance of change and quality

Discrete distribution
A probability distribution for a discrete random variable

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

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

Event
A subset of a sample space.

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

Factorial experiment
A type of experimental design in which every level of one factor is tested in combination with every level of another factor. In general, in a factorial experiment, all possible combinations of factor levels are tested.

Fixed factor (or fixed effect).
In analysis of variance, a factor or effect is considered ixed if all the levels of interest for that factor are included in the experiment. Conclusions are then valid about this set of levels only, although when the factor is quantitative, it is customary to it a model to the data for interpolating between these levels.

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.
