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

Bivariate distribution
The joint probability distribution of two random variables.

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.

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.

Comparative experiment
An experiment in which the treatments (experimental conditions) that are to be studied are included in the experiment. The data from the experiment are used to evaluate the treatments.

Confounding
When a factorial experiment is run in blocks and the blocks are too small to contain a complete replicate of the experiment, one can run a fraction of the replicate in each block, but this results in losing information on some effects. These effects are linked with or confounded with the blocks. In general, when two factors are varied such that their individual effects cannot be determined separately, their effects are said to be confounded.

Consistent estimator
An estimator that converges in probability to the true value of the estimated parameter as the sample size increases.

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

Cumulative sum control chart (CUSUM)
A control chart in which the point plotted at time t is the sum of the measured deviations from target for all statistics up to time t

Defectsperunit control chart
See U chart

Designed experiment
An experiment in which the tests are planned in advance and the plans usually incorporate statistical models. See Experiment

Distribution free method(s)
Any method of inference (hypothesis testing or conidence interval construction) that does not depend on the form of the underlying distribution of the observations. Sometimes called nonparametric method(s).

Distribution function
Another name for a cumulative distribution function.

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

Error variance
The variance of an error term or component in a model.

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

Expected value
The expected value of a random variable X is its longterm average or mean value. In the continuous case, the expected value of X is E X xf x dx ( ) = ?? ( ) ? ? where f ( ) x is the density function of the random variable X.

Extra sum of squares method
A method used in regression analysis to conduct a hypothesis test for the additional contribution of one or more variables to a model.

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