Power is defined as (1 – β) where β is the probability of a Type II error (see Type One and Type II Errors (Biostatistics Text)). It is the probability of detection a difference or probability of rejecting the Null Hypothesis (Biostatistics Text) (or H0) when you should.

The interaction of α, β, and power are an important part of Hypothesis Testing (Biostatistics Text)
