• Almost sure convergence [r]: The probability that the given sequence of random variables converges is 1. [e]
• Applied statistics [r]: the practice of collecting and interpreting numerical observations for the purpose of generating information. [e]
• Characteristic function [r]: A function on a set which takes the value 1 on a given subset and 0 on its complement. [e]
• Conditioning (probability) [r]: Conditional probabilities, conditional expectations and conditional distributions are treated on three levels. [e]
• Confidence interval [r]: the range of a random variable, such as the mean of a sample, that — with a specified probability — contains the true value for the population. [e]
• Errors and residuals in statistics [r]: Comparison of two related notions of mathematical statistics. [e]
• Factor analysis [r]: Statistical technique used to explain variability among observed random variables in terms of fewer unobserved random variables called factors. [e]
• Measurable function [r]: Function on a measurable space to a measurable space such that the inverse image of a measurable set is a measurable set. [e]
• Measurable space [r]: Set together with a sigma-algebra of subsets of this set. [e]
• Measure space [r]: Set together with a sigma-algebra of subsets of the set and a measure defined on this sigma-algebra. [e]
• Normal distribution [r]: a symmetrical bell-shaped probability distribution representing the frequency of random variations of a quantity from its mean. [e]
• Sigma algebra [r]: A formal mathematical structure intended among other things to provide a rigid basis for measure theory and axiomatic probability theory. [e]
• Statistics theory [r]: A branch of mathematics that specializes in enumeration, or counted, data and their relation to measured data. [e]
• Stochastic convergence [r]: A mathematical concept intended to formalize the idea that a sequence of essentially random or unpredictable events sometimes is expected to settle into a pattern. [e]
• Stochastic process [r]: Family of random variables, dependent upon a parameter which usually denotes time. [e]
