The quantitative methods which work well in statistics, including the bell curve or Gaussian curve, can accurately predict the future income of a dentist--but not the value of the future work of someone named Bruce Springsteen when he is 17 years old.

The distribution of these CVs for popping expansion was close to the normality, and the shape of this Gaussian curve was classified as platykurtic because of its flattered curvature (FERREIRA, 2005).
The Gaussian curve can be considered as the intensity distribution expected for binder surface reflections, without any contribution from pigment particles or pits.
The relationship between shell length (X) and egg number (Y) can be modeled using a Gaussian curve of the form:
The linear values of the power samples approximately fit a log normal distribution because the dBm values are a close fit to a normal or Gaussian curve.
In this study, hundreds of the diffuse spectral features are measured with respect to central wavelength, equivalent width, and full width half-maximum of the Gaussian curve for each known and recently proposed DIB.
