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

A formula used to determine the probability of the union of two (or more) events from the probabilities of the events and their intersection(s).

• 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.

• 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

• Average

See Arithmetic mean.

• Biased estimator

Unbiased estimator.

• Binomial random variable

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

• Bivariate distribution

The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

• Box plot (or box and whisker plot)

A graphical display of data in which the box contains the middle 50% of the data (the interquartile range) with the median dividing it, and the whiskers extend to the smallest and largest values (or some deined lower and upper limits).

• Causal variable

When y fx = ( ) and y is considered to be caused by x, x is sometimes called a causal variable

• Conditional probability mass function

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

• Conidence coeficient

The probability 1?a associated with a conidence interval expressing the probability that the stated interval will contain the true parameter value.

• Conidence interval

If it is possible to write a probability statement of the form PL U ( ) ? ? ? ? = ?1 where L and U are functions of only the sample data and ? is a parameter, then the interval between L and U is called a conidence interval (or a 100 1( )% ? ? conidence interval). The interpretation is that a statement that the parameter ? lies in this interval will be true 100 1( )% ? ? of the times that such a statement is made

• 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.

• Correlation

In the most general usage, a measure of the interdependence among data. The concept may include more than two variables. The term is most commonly used in a narrow sense to express the relationship between quantitative variables or ranks.

• Deining relation

A subset of effects in a fractional factorial design that deine the aliases in the design.

• Discrete uniform random variable

A discrete random variable with a inite range and constant probability mass function.

• 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.

• Gamma random variable

A random variable that generalizes an Erlang random variable to noninteger values of the parameter r

• Geometric random variable

A discrete random variable that is the number of Bernoulli trials until a success occurs.
