A3.1 Normal Distribution

Recall from equation (1.1) that the probability density function is defined by

where μ and σ 2 are parameters that describe the curve. In this case, we write yN(μ, σ 2). Straightforward calculations show that

and

Thus, the notation yN(μ, σ 2) is interpreted to mean that the random variable ...
