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

Alias
In a fractional factorial experiment when certain factor effects cannot be estimated uniquely, they are said to be aliased.

Asymptotic relative eficiency (ARE)
Used to compare hypothesis tests. The ARE of one test relative to another is the limiting ratio of the sample sizes necessary to obtain identical error probabilities for the two procedures.

Bivariate normal distribution
The joint distribution of two normal random variables

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

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

Control chart
A graphical display used to monitor a process. It usually consists of a horizontal center line corresponding to the incontrol 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 incontrol, or free from assignable causes. Points beyond the control limits indicate an outofcontrol process; that is, assignable causes are likely present. This signals the need to ind and remove the assignable causes.

Covariance
A measure of association between two random variables obtained as the expected value of the product of the two random variables around their means; that is, Cov(X Y, ) [( )( )] =? ? E X Y ? ? X Y .

Crossed factors
Another name for factors that are arranged in a factorial experiment.

Cumulative normal distribution function
The cumulative distribution of the standard normal distribution, often denoted as ?( ) x and tabulated in Appendix Table II.

Defectsperunit control chart
See U chart

Degrees of freedom.
The number of independent comparisons that can be made among the elements of a sample. The term is analogous to the number of degrees of freedom for an object in a dynamic system, which is the number of independent coordinates required to determine the motion of the object.

Deming
W. Edwards Deming (1900–1993) was a leader in the use of statistical quality control.

Density function
Another name for a probability density function

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

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

Event
A subset of a sample space.

Finite population correction factor
A term in the formula for the variance of a hypergeometric random variable.

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