Tom said:...named after Karl Friedrich Gauss, the German mathematician......Gauss was honored with his "photo" (image) and a diagram of a Gaussian (aka "normal" or bell-shaped) distribution on a German bank note. I have one around here somewhere..., but haven't laid eyes on it since we last moved.
I was cleaning up the garage this morning and look at what I found .... that 10 DM note (two of them actually). So, for the mathematicians and statisticians out there, you might appreciate seeing this.
