# The Gaussian!!

## The Trivial Intro

The Gaussian distribution is one of the most widely used continuous distribution with applications in many fields. It has several other names like ** normal distribution, bell curve**. The density function with mean and variance is given by: $$ f(x\vert \mu,\sigma^2)= \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi \sigma^2}}\exp^{\frac{-(x-\mu)^2}{2\sigma^2}} $$
