For the remaining members of the set, the electrostatic potential at this position is zero. This variable has now become an ‘indicator’ variable which has two distinct values (zero for 20 % of the molecules and −50 for the remainder) that identify two different subsets of the data. The problem may be overcome if the magnitude of a minimum or maximum is taken, irrespective of position, although problems may occur with molecules that have multiple minima or maxima. There is also the more difficult philosophical question of what do such values ‘mean’.

The origin of the expression ‘Doptimal’ is a bit of statistical jargon based on the determinant of the variance–covariance matrix. As will be seen in the next section on compound selection, a well-chosen set of experiments (or compounds) will have a wide spread in the experimental factor space (variance). 1) between experimental factors is at a minimum (covariance). The determinant of a matrix is a single number and in the case of a variance–covariance matrix for a data set this number describes the ‘balance’ between variance and covariance.

6 SUMMARY In this chapter the following points were covered: 1. dependent and independent variables and how data tables are laid out; 2. where data comes from and some of its properties; 3. descriptors, parameters and properties; 4. nominal, ordinal, interval and ratio scales; 5. frequency distributions, the normal distribution, definition and explanation of mean, variance and standard deviation. skewness and kurtosis; 6. the difference between sample and population properties; 7. factors causing deviations in distribution; 8.
