CQFD (ce qu’il fallait démontrer) QED (quod erat demonstrandum) QED is usually placed at the end of a math-ematical proof to indicate that the proof is complete. décimal/la décimale decimal A decimal is any number in our base-ten number system. déduire to deduce Descartes’s own attempts to deduce the dif-ferent qualities and actions of bodies in this way are not of much value. dénombrable countable The strict mathematical definition of a countable set is a set that is in bijective correspondance to the natural numbers, which are the integers from.
domaine d’étude domain of study The power of expression, properties and interrelations of various logics with gener-alised quantifies is now a well established domain of study in mathematical logic. équation equation An equation is a statement that two expres-sions are equal. > résoudre une équation to solve an equation exact exact As used in physics, the term “exact” gen-erally refers to a solution that captures the entire physics and mathematics of a prob-lem as opposed to one that is approximate, perturbative, etc. Exact solutions therefore need not be closed-form. > exactitude/justesse accuracy exemple example Sometimes the best way to learn is by work-ing some example problems until you begin to understand the subject.

A mathematical joke states that 4/3 of peo-ple don’t understand fractions. par exemple/p. ex. géométrieexempli gratia/e.g. geometry e.g. (exempli gratia) means “for example” Geometry is a branch of mathematics that and is usually used to give an example deals with points, lines, angles, surfaces, of a statement that was just made and is and solids. always followed by a comma. > géométrique pourcentage geometric/geometrical percentage > géométriquement In mathematics, a percentage is a number geometrically in the fraction of 100. It is often denoted with the symbol of “%”, or simply “pct” hypothèse or “percent”. hypothesis/assumption In mathematics, a hypothesis is an unproven preuve statement which is supported by all the proof available data and by many weaker results. A proof is a logical argument that estab-> hypothèse intrinsèque lishes, beyond any doubt, that something intrinsic assumption is true. lemme problème lemma problem The four labels given by mathematicians Problem solving has a special importance to statements that can be shown to be true are Lemma, Theorem, Proposition and in the study of mathematics.

réciprocité reciprocity The American Mathematical Society has reciprocity agreements with a number of mathematical organizations around the world. > réciproquement conversely > réciproque reciprocal or inverse > réciproque d’un théorème converse of a theorem récurrence induction Mathematical Induction is a special way of proving things. It has only 2 steps: Step 1. Show it is true for the first one. Step 2. Show that if any one is true then the next one is true. Then all are true. > par récurrence by induction si, et seulement si (ssi) if, and only if, (iff) x+2=7 if and only if x=5. soit let… be Let x be any real number. statistiques statistics “Statistics have shown that mortality increases perceptibly in the military dur-ing wartime.” Alphonse Allais (1854-1905) solution solution The Mathematics education community has long recognized the importance of diagrams in the solution of mathematical problems. supposer to assume The way Hypothesis handles this is to let you specify things which you assume to be true. > supposition assumption

tâtonnement trial and error/guess and check Any equation can be solved by trial and error. However, this is a tedious procedure. terme term ² The term is x , which is the product of x and x. > termes semblables like terms théorème theorem A theorem is a statement that can be demon-strated to be true by accepted mathematical operations and arguments. topologie topology Topology is the mathematical study of the properties that are preserved through deformations, twistings, and stretchings of objects.

attribut attribute There are two categories of Control Charts: Attribute and Variables.
capabilité capability An SPC with fine detection capability indi-cates that the SPC wants to have security policy rules to be able to detect not only critical, but also trivial intrusion.
caractéristique characteristic In probability theory and statistics, the characteristic function of any real-valued random variable completely defines its probability distribution.
carte de contrôle control chart The control chart is a graph used to study how a process changes over time with data plotted in time order.
carte R R-chart/range chart An R-chart uses amount of dispersion in a sample.
carte x bar x bar chart/mean chart An x bar chart is used to monitor the aver-age value, or mean, of a process over time.

cause commune/cause aléatoire common cause/natural cause Common cause variation is fluctuation caused by unknown factors resulting in a steady but random distribution of output around the average of the data.
cause profonde root cause While unpredictable variation is best iden-tified using an SPC chart, the sources of this variation will need root cause analysis for identification that leads to actions to eliminate or minimize these causes.
cause spéciale/cause asssignable special cause/assignable cause Special cause variation is a shift in output caused by a specific factor such as envi-ronmental conditions or process input parameters. centile percentile The pth percentile is that score such that p percent of the observations score lower or equal to the score. > quantile quantile > quartile quartile coefficient de variation coefficient of variation A coefficient of variation (CV) can be cal-culated and interpreted in two different settings: analyzing a single variable and interpreting a model. > quartile supérieur (Q3) upper quartile, third quartile > quartile inférieur (Q1) lower quartile, first quartile contrôle qualité quality control Quality control is a process through which a business seeks to ensure that product quality is maintained or improved and manufacturing errors are reduced or eliminated.

diagramme de Gantt Gantt chart Gantt Charts are a popular project man-agement tool for planning and scheduling projects.

diagramme logatithmique logarithmic graph A logarithmic graph does not show the rate of change.
dispersion dispersion A way of describing how scattered or spread out the observations in a sample are. Common measures of dispersion are the range, inter quartile range, variance, and standard deviation.
données data A table is a convenient way to show large amount of data in a small space.
> variable binaire binary data > base de données database > banque de données data bank > données multidimensionnelles/ données multivariables multidimensional data écart absolu absolute square The Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD) of a set of data is the average distance between each data value and the mean. écart type standard deviation The sample standard deviation is simply the square root of the variance. effectif size Effect size is a statistical concept that measures the strength of the relationship between two variables on a numeric scale.
