Orthogonal is a term which occurs in several regions of the statistics with different meanings in each case.

Most commonly the encountered in the relation to two variables or two linear functions of the set of variables to indicate statistical independence. Factually means 'at right angles' but in the applied statistics most frequently used as a descriptive term for the ability to disentangle amongst the individual effects.
