Gaussian distribution
Gaussian distribution(Gaussian curve, normal distribution) The values of a variable (x) are distributed systematically around their mean (x̄) according to a frequency f, given by: f = 1/(s(2π)^{−2}) exp (−(x − x̄^{2})/2s^{2}), where s is the standard deviation. It is named after the German mathematician Karl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855).
