Key Statistics Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Additivity property of x 2

If two independent random variables X1 and X2 are distributed as chi-square with v1 and v2 degrees of freedom, respectively, Y = + X X 1 2 is a chi-square random variable with u = + v v 1 2 degrees of freedom. This generalizes to any number of independent chi-square random variables.

• Axioms of probability

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

• Categorical data

Data consisting of counts or observations that can be classiied into categories. The categories may be descriptive.

• 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 density function

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

• Conditional probability mass function

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

• Control chart

A graphical display used to monitor a process. It usually consists of a horizontal center line corresponding to the in-control value of the parameter that is being monitored and lower and upper control limits. The control limits are determined by statistical criteria and are not arbitrary, nor are they related to speciication limits. If sample points fall within the control limits, the process is said to be in-control, or free from assignable causes. Points beyond the control limits indicate an out-of-control process; that is, assignable causes are likely present. This signals the need to ind and remove the assignable causes.

• Control limits

See Control chart.

• Convolution

A method to derive the probability density function of the sum of two independent random variables from an integral (or sum) of probability density (or mass) functions.

• 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.

• Curvilinear regression

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

• Decision interval

A parameter in a tabular CUSUM algorithm that is determined from a trade-off between false alarms and the detection of assignable causes.

• Enumerative study

A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to the population. See Analytic study

• Erlang random variable

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

• 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

• First-order model

A model that contains only irstorder terms. For example, the irst-order response surface model in two variables is y xx = + ?? ? ? 0 11 2 2 + + . A irst-order model is also called a main effects model

• Forward selection

A method of variable selection in regression, where variables are inserted one at a time into the model until no other variables that contribute signiicantly to the model can be found.

• Fractional factorial experiment

A type of factorial experiment in which not all possible treatment combinations are run. This is usually done to reduce the size of an experiment with several factors.

• Frequency distribution

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