Analytic study
A study in which a sample from a population is used to make inference to a future population. Stability needs to be assumed. See Enumerative study

Arithmetic mean
The arithmetic mean of a set of numbers x1 , x2 ,…, xn is their sum divided by the number of observations, or ( / )1 1 n xi t n ? = . The arithmetic mean is usually denoted by x , and is often called the average

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

Block
In experimental design, a group of experimental units or material that is relatively homogeneous. The purpose of dividing experimental units into blocks is to produce an experimental design wherein variability within blocks is smaller than variability between blocks. This allows the factors of interest to be compared in an environment that has less variability than in an unblocked experiment.

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

Combination.
A subset selected without replacement from a set used to determine the number of outcomes in events and sample spaces.

Completely randomized design (or experiment)
A type of experimental design in which the treatments or design factors are assigned to the experimental units in a random manner. In designed experiments, a completely randomized design results from running all of the treatment combinations in random order.

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

Conditional probability
The probability of an event given that the random experiment produces an outcome in another event.

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

Contrast
A linear function of treatment means with coeficients that total zero. A contrast is a summary of treatment means that is of interest in an experiment.

Defect concentration diagram
A quality tool that graphically shows the location of defects on a part or in a process.

Dispersion
The amount of variability exhibited by data

Distribution function
Another name for a cumulative distribution function.

Estimate (or point estimate)
The numerical value of a point estimator.

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

Gamma function
A function used in the probability density function of a gamma random variable that can be considered to extend factorials

Generating function
A function that is used to determine properties of the probability distribution of a random variable. See Momentgenerating function

Geometric mean.
The geometric mean of a set of n positive data values is the nth root of the product of the data values; that is, g x i n i n = ( ) = / w 1 1 .

Hat matrix.
In multiple regression, the matrix H XXX X = ( ) ? ? 1 . This a projection matrix that maps the vector of observed response values into a vector of itted values by yˆ = = X X X X y Hy ( ) ? ? ?1 .
