# Gaussian error

## Gaussian error

[¦gau̇·sē·ən ′er·ər]
Deviation of a magnetic compass due to transient magnetism which remains in a vessel's structure for short periods after the inducing force has been removed, usually appearing after a vessel has been on the same heading for a considerable time.

standard deviation, covariance, confidence interval), and then by drawing empirical distributions of these parameters to propagate uncertainty in M estimates, usually assuming Gaussian error.
In particular, Gaussian error distribution for estimating growth parameters can resolve some even nonsensical shortcomings, for instance negative length values.
where log [eta] = an independent additive Gaussian error,
where l is the three-dimensional coordinates of UE, F is measurement vector, and v is a zero-mean Gaussian error vector.
Frequency of insulin dosing errors as a function of error condition for 29 920 000 simulated glucose values using the gaussian error model.
Rectangular and triangular error distributions were used, and it was found that the psychophysical procedure estimated the standard deviations of these distributions almost as accurately as it estimated the standard deviation of a Gaussian error distribution.
In our case, the days in the central part of the year are favored due to the bias of the Gaussian error model.
The reason is that these come from of a business-as-usual scenario, described by a linear VAR with Gaussian errors. Sometimes you get shocks, but because the simulations are based on Gaussian errors, those shocks tend not to be large enough to tip the economy into a recession.
Differences in oocyte volume between cultured and wild colonies were evaluated using a generalized linear model (GLM) or a generalized linear mixed model (GLMM) with Gaussian errors and the identity link function.
1b; GLM with Gaussian errors and identity link [the nesting block of ramet ID in genet ID was included in the model]: n = 466, [F.sub.1464] = 259.17, P < 0.001).
