Alternative hypothesis
In statistical hypothesis testing, this is a hypothesis other than the one that is being tested. The alternative hypothesis contains feasible conditions, whereas the null hypothesis speciies conditions that are under test

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

Bimodal distribution.
A distribution with two modes

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.

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.

Conditional probability distribution
The distribution of a random variable given that the random experiment produces an outcome in an event. The given event might specify values for one or more other random variables

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

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

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

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

Dependent variable
The response variable in regression or a designed experiment.

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

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

Event
A subset of a sample space.

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

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.

Factorial experiment
A type of experimental design in which every level of one factor is tested in combination with every level of another factor. In general, in a factorial experiment, all possible combinations of factor levels are tested.

Firstorder model
A model that contains only irstorder terms. For example, the irstorder response surface model in two variables is y xx = + ?? ? ? 0 11 2 2 + + . A irstorder model is also called a main effects model

Geometric mean.
The geometric mean of a set of n positive data values is the nth root of the product of the data values; that is, g x i n i n = ( ) = / w 1 1 .

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