The probability of getting in n trials a deviation u = (hp) n from throwing N = np times a definite number, where n _ , is described by the well-known Gaussian distribution [P.
The Gaussian distribution was centered about the mean value for each genetic characteristic and the range in variation for each was set by the standard deviation ([[sigma].
The dispersion of the second phase is either random, or taken as randomly dispersed spheres with a Gaussian distribution of a given radius in a number of grid cells and standard deviation of the radius.
Divorce rates that show a nearly Gaussian distribution for the selected states (Figure 2) were classed using quantile and standard deviation methods.
Other population effects may go unreported, suggested Palmer, because the Gaussian distribution of a particular response is not shifted left or right by exposure to a disruptor, but instead the curve tends to flatten because of increased variation.
When product is fed out from an IQF freezer, a camel-back system is used; which produces a normal Gaussian distribution.
I can remember one occasion, taking a shower with my wife while high, in which I had an idea on the origins and invalidities of racism in terms of gaussian distribution curves,'' wrote the former Cornell University professor.
I also found the secrecy of the Bank of England (Chapter 4; circa 1797) interesting, the frequency analysis of the weather (Chapter 5; circa 1850) insightful, and the ties between the Gaussian distribution and natural selection (Chapter 7; circa 1900) informative.
the description of a Gaussian distribution, sampling rules, Bayesian inferences, and hundreds more - is substantively empty; it matters not whether one is counting gold mine production, deaths in war, or quasar emissions.
