Probability Function

In statistics, a measure of the probable distribution of some random variable. When plotted on a chart, the area under the graph represents the probable values of the random variable. It is used in foreign exchange and equities as a means of assessing probable future market trends.

To solve for turbulent flow without closely associated defferent dynamical mechanics, a probability density function method is adopted to describe the pulsating intensity of velocity of fluid particles in this study.
This model revealed three properties of growth: separability, self-similarity and a Gaussian branch density function. Separability means that growth in one spatial direction is independent of growth in other directions.
