Adjusted R 2
A variation of the R 2 statistic that compensates for the number of parameters in a regression model. Essentially, the adjustment is a penalty for increasing the number of parameters in the model. Alias. In a fractional factorial experiment when certain factor effects cannot be estimated uniquely, they are said to be aliased.

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

Bayesâ€™ theorem
An equation for a conditional probability such as PA B (  ) in terms of the reverse conditional probability PB A (  ).

Bivariate distribution
The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

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.

Center line
A horizontal line on a control chart at the value that estimates the mean of the statistic plotted on the chart. See Control chart.

Central composite design (CCD)
A secondorder response surface design in k variables consisting of a twolevel factorial, 2k axial runs, and one or more center points. The twolevel factorial portion of a CCD can be a fractional factorial design when k is large. The CCD is the most widely used design for itting a secondorder model.

Coeficient of determination
See R 2 .

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

Continuous uniform random variable
A continuous random variable with range of a inite interval and a constant probability density function.

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.

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

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

Design matrix
A matrix that provides the tests that are to be conducted in an experiment.

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

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 modelitting process and not on replication.

Event
A subset of a sample space.

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

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 Momentgenerating function
