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 $\mu$ and variance $\sigma^2$ is given by: $$f(x\vert \mu,\sigma^2)= \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi \sigma^2}}\exp^{\frac{-(x-\mu)^2}{2\sigma^2}}$$
