Half Normal Distribution Equations

  • The parameter μ in this formula is the mean or expectation of the distribution (and also its median and mode).
  • The parameter σ is its standard deviation; its variance is therefore σ' 2. A random variable with a Gaussian distribution is said to be normally distributed and is called a normal deviate.
