Assignable cause
The portion of the variability in a set of observations that can be traced to speciic causes, such as operators, materials, or equipment. Also called a special cause.

Attribute
A qualitative characteristic of an item or unit, usually arising in quality control. For example, classifying production units as defective or nondefective results in attributes data.

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

Biased estimator
Unbiased estimator.

Bivariate normal distribution
The joint distribution of two normal random variables

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

Components of variance
The individual components of the total variance that are attributable to speciic sources. This usually refers to the individual variance components arising from a random or mixed model analysis of variance.

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.

Continuous random variable.
A random variable with an interval (either inite or ininite) of real numbers for its range.

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.

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.

Correlation coeficient
A dimensionless measure of the linear association between two variables, usually lying in the interval from ?1 to +1, with zero indicating the absence of correlation (but not necessarily the independence of the two variables).

Counting techniques
Formulas used to determine the number of elements in sample spaces and events.

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

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

Empirical model
A model to relate a response to one or more regressors or factors that is developed from data obtained from the system.

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.

Experiment
A series of tests in which changes are made to the system under study

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