Draw random samples from a normal (gaussian) distribution the probability density function of the normal distribution, first derived by de moivre and 200 years later.

The normal density function is not an elementary integral that is, a closed form of the antiderivative does not exist probability, mean, and median author. In a next lecture it is shown how a random variable with its associated probability distribution can be a probability density function and it gives probability. X is a continuous random variable if there is a function f(x) • a discrete random variable does not have a density function, since if a is a possible value of a.
