Also see Appendix 5A. 0. " No matter how small or how straightforward a process may be, measuring instruments abound. They tell us such things as input temperature, concentration of reactant, percent catalyst, steam temperature, consumption rate, pressure, and so on, depending on the characteristics of the process being studied. Some of these readings are available at regular intervals, every five minutes perhaps or every half hour; others are observed continuously. Still other readings are available with a little extra time and effort.

Plot of the steam data for variables 1 (Y) and 8 (X). word linear is usually omitted and understood. The order of the model could be of any size. Notation of the form /311 is often used in polynomial models; /31 is the parameter that goes with X while /311 is the parameter that goes with X 2 = xx. The natural extension of this sort of notation appears, for example, in Chapter 12, where /312 is the parameter associated with X 1 X 2 and so on. Least Squares Estimation Now /30, /31, and E are unknown in Eq.

Note carefully that we do not use the word "accept," since we normally cannot accept a hypothesis. The most we can say is that on the basis of certain observed data we cannot reject it. It may well happen, however, that in another set of data we can find evidence that is contrary to our hypothesis and so reject it. " If the man walks to save bus fare or avoids lunch to save lunch money, we have no reason to reject this hypothesis. Further observations of this kind may make us feel Ho is true, but we still cannot accept it unless we know all the true facts about the man.
