Examples Here are a few examples of binomial distributions. 5. 2 shows the probability of obtaining k times a “six” in 60 throws of a perfect dice. 5. 3 3 This is a case where scientists would demand a very high significance level in order to even consider positive experimental outcomes. Previous experimenters have fallen into all the statistical pitfalls you can think of. See Gardner (1957). 1 The probability of obtaining k heads in 10 coin tosses. 2 The probability of obtaining k faces “6” in 60 throws of a dice.

For μ = 10σ the shape of the curve is virtually indistinguishable from the normal pdf. 48) where μ is the mean and w is a width parameter. At x = μ ± w the function is at half its maximum height. A measure for the width is the FWHH (full width at half height), equal to 2w. This distribution may arise from spectroscopic experiments: the frequency distribution of emitted quanta from a sharp lifetime-limited excited state has a Lorentzian shape. The Lorentzian shape also arises in another context: Student’s t-distribution for one degree of freedom (see data sheet STUDENT ’ S T- DISTRIBUTION on page 213).

1 A simple example will make this clear. You are a chemist who wishes to determine the equilibrium constant of the association reaction in solution A+B AB. 2 mmol B in 100 ± 1 mL solvent; then you mix the two solutions. 35 mmol/L. The uncertainties given are all standard deviations of supposedly normal distributions. What is the value of the equilibrium constant K and what is its standard uncertainty? 7) Monte Carlo methods can be applied in many fields, notably in statistics, in statistical mechanics and in mathematics to compute multidimensional definite integrals.
