Should the be inside of the variance equation? I think not. Check this.

Isn't this distribution exactly the same as a noncentral chi distribution with 1 degree of freedom? --Zvika 11:05, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

If Y ~ FoldedNormal(μ, σ2), then (Y/σ) ~ NoncentralChi(df=1, noncentrality=μ/σ). So pedantically speaking, your statement is only correct for σ=1. Btyner (talk) 19:41, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

what is Phi capital[edit]

Obviously, Phi is not explained. Every variable or function should be explained! Please, check and correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:32, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

I added the definition of Phi, the normal cumulative distribution function, and a link to that page. Hawryluka (talk) 20:46, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
