 # Main Page - ProofWiki Online texts Professor Jim Herod and I have written Multivariable Calculus ,a book which we and a few others have used here at Georgia Tech for two years. We have also proposed that this be the first calculus course in the curriculum here, but that is another story.... Although it is still in print, Calculus,by Gilbert Strang is made available through MIT's OpenCourseWare electronic publishing initiative. Here is one that has also been used here at Georgia Tech. Linear Methods of Applied Mathematics, by Evans Harrell and James Herod. Yet another one produced at Georgia Tech is Linear Algebra, Infinite Dimensions, and Maple, by James Herod.

How to Become a Pure Mathematician (or Statistician) The Normal Distribution Loading [MathJax]/jax/output/HTML-CSS/fonts/TeX/AMS/Regular/Main.js \newcommand{\R}{\mathbb{R}}\newcommand{\N}{\mathbb{N}}\newcommand{\P}{\mathbb{P}}\newcommand{\E}{\mathbb{E}}\newcommand{\var}{\text{var}}\newcommand{\sd}{\text{sd}}\newcommand{\skew}{\text{skew}}\newcommand{\kurt}{\text{kurt}} The normal distribution holds an honored role in probability and statistics, mostly because of the central limit theorem, one of the fundamental theorems that forms a bridge between the two subjects. In addition, as we will see, the normal distribution has many nice mathematical properties. The normal distribution is also called the Gaussian distribution The Standard Normal Distribution A random variable Z has the standard normal distribution if it has the probability density function \phi given by \phi(z) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2 \, \pi}} e^{-\frac{1}{2} z^2}, \quad z \in \R \phi is a probability density function. The standard normal density function \phi satisfies the following properties: Moments The The general
