10.7 Statistical Operations on Vectors

The commands in this section take vectors as arguments and compute various statistical measures on the data stored in the vectors. The references used in the definitions of these functions are Bevington's Data Reduction and Error Analysis for the Physical Sciences, and Numerical Recipes by Press, Flannery, Teukolsky and Vetterling.

The statistical commands use the u prefix key followed by a shifted letter or other character.

See section 10.4 Manipulating Vectors, for a description of V H (calc-histogram).

See section 11.8 Curve Fitting, for the a F command for doing least-squares fits to statistical data.

See section 9.7 Probability Distribution Functions, for several common probability distribution functions.

10.7.1 Single-Variable Statistics
