## Study Notes

### Experiment Designs

- Designed experiment: actively manipulates variables to observe their effect on a specific outcome
- Factorial experiment design: uses every possible combination of factor levels to form a basic experiment with "k" different settings for the process
- Fractional factorial experiment design: a variation of the basic factorial arrangement, testing only a subset of the factor combinations

### Hypothesis Testing

- One-sample hypothesis: tests a hypothesis about a single population parameter based on data from a single sample
- Two-sample hypothesis: compares two population parameters using data from two independent samples

### Study Types

- Observational study: observes real-world conditions for a period of time without manipulating variables
- Retrospective study: looks back at past data to identify relationships between variables
- Survey: a method to ask a lot of people a few well-constructed questions, with a series of unbiased questions that the subject must answer

### Probability and Statistics

- Axiom: a postulate, assumption, or a statement that is taken to be true, serving as a premise for further reasoning and arguments
- Probability distribution: describes the relative likelihood of a random variable taking on different possible values
- Probability mass function: used for discrete random variables
- Probability density function: used for continuous random variables
- Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF): describes the distribution of random variables, can be defined for any kind of random variable (discrete, continuous, or mixed)
- Expected value (mean): provides a measure of the central tendency of a probability distribution, calculated using the equation E(X) = ...
- Variance: measures the degree of spread or dispersion of the values of a variable around the expected value (mean), calculated using the formula V(X) = ...
- Standard deviation: the square root of the variance, providing a measure of the amount of variation or dispersion in a set of values
