Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• 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

• `-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).

• 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

• Backward elimination

A method of variable selection in regression that begins with all of the candidate regressor variables in the model and eliminates the insigniicant regressors one at a time until only signiicant regressors remain

• Binomial random variable

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

• Cause-and-effect diagram

A chart used to organize the various potential causes of a problem. Also called a ishbone diagram.

• Central limit theorem

The simplest form of the central limit theorem states that the sum of n independently distributed random variables will tend to be normally distributed as n becomes large. It is a necessary and suficient condition that none of the variances of the individual random variables are large in comparison to their sum. There are more general forms of the central theorem that allow ininite variances and correlated random variables, and there is a multivariate version of the theorem.

• Conditional probability density function

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

• Conditional variance.

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

• Consistent estimator

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

• Continuous distribution

A probability distribution for a continuous random variable.

• Curvilinear regression

An expression sometimes used for nonlinear regression models or polynomial regression models.

• 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

• Dispersion

The amount of variability exhibited by data

• 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.

• Error variance

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

• Estimator (or point estimator)

A procedure for producing an estimate of a parameter of interest. An estimator is usually a function of only sample data values, and when these data values are available, it results in an estimate of the parameter of interest.

• Generating function

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