Some aspects of this theory and its application are critically examined in Chapter 10. 7) above we defined a relationship between t, Normal and chi-square distributions. We now mention two other relationships between common distributions which we shall have occasion to use in order to calculate probabilities. 14) If Z has a standard Normal distribution, then Y ˆ Z2 has a chi-square distribution with one degree of freedom. Remark This relationship may be used to calculate probabilities for a chi-square with one degree of freedom.

The result is thus clearly significant. If we wish to calculate 95% confidence limits for the treatment effect, then we first form the product of the standard error and the critical value, finding 2:179  11:26 l =min ˆ 24:5 l =min. This value must then be subtracted or added from the estimated treatment effect 45:4 l =min. If we use the symbol t for the true treatment effect, which is defined as the difference between the expected response under formoterol and that under salbutamol, then we have the 95% confidence interval: 214t470, to the nearest litre per minute.

13) In order to make inferences about a given regression coefficient, for example, bi , it is necessary to calculate its standard error. This requires identification of the appropriate element of (XH X)À1 . The diagonal elements of this matrix are the multipliers for the variances of the estimated regression coefficients and the off-diagonal elements are the multipliers for the covariances. 8) above, that ”i À p $ tnÀkÀ1 , ” aii where tc is a random variable with Student's t distribution with c degrees of freedom.
