Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Binomial random variable

A discrete random variable that equals the number of successes in a ixed number of Bernoulli trials.

• C chart

An attribute control chart that plots the total number of defects per unit in a subgroup. Similar to a defects-per-unit or U chart.

• Cause-and-effect 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.

• Chi-square test

Any test of signiicance based on the chi-square distribution. The most common chi-square tests are (1) testing hypotheses about the variance or standard deviation of a normal distribution and (2) testing goodness of it of a theoretical distribution to sample data

• Conditional probability mass function

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

• Conidence level

Another term for the conidence coeficient.

• Continuous distribution

A probability distribution for a continuous random variable.

• Counting techniques

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

• Critical region

In hypothesis testing, this is the portion of the sample space of a test statistic that will lead to rejection of the null hypothesis.

• Discrete random variable

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

• Error mean square

The error sum of squares divided by its number of degrees of freedom.

• Estimate (or point estimate)

The numerical value of a point estimator.

• Exponential random variable

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

• Extra sum of squares method

A method used in regression analysis to conduct a hypothesis test for the additional contribution of one or more variables to a model.

• False alarm

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

• 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.

• 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

• Generating function

A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Moment-generating function

• Harmonic mean

The harmonic mean of a set of data values is the reciprocal of the arithmetic mean of the reciprocals of the data values; that is, h n x i n i = ? ? ? ? ? = ? ? 1 1 1 1 g .
