January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Benktander Weibull distribution may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "<>"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • parameters =<math>a>0</math> ([[real number|real]])<br/><math>0<b<=1</math> ([[real number|real]]) |
  • support ={{nowrap|''x'' ∈ [1, ∞)}} |

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 02:11, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Hey! I am trying to implement the cumulative distribution function of the noncentral t according to specification currently on the article. I amended the form of the first version when x < 0, as Ftilde() is insensitive to the sign of x (because it only enters through a squared term). The first form only seems to work when both x and μ are both positive or both negative (at least, when compared to the pt() function in R)... that might be a problem with my coding, but I've been going over my attempted implementation with a fine toothed comb for two days now. Anywho, your insights welcome.Lexy-lou (talk) 22:03, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Raised cosine distribution[edit]

Hello, I'm puzzled by your edit. Could you explain the connection between the differential equation and the raised cosine distribution in the article? I suspect the pdf of that distribution is a solution to the differential equation, but where does the differential equation come from? -- UKoch (talk) 20:04, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ukoch, it was found through Mathematica's DifferentialRootReduce function [1] -- BeyondNormality (talk) 20:42, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

OK. I changed the format of the section and added a short explanation, but I think what's still missing is a better connection between the differential equation and the raised cosine distribution. I would have expected the equation to stem from some "real-world" problem or application, which would probably make more sense to the reader. As it is, the section still looks like "I looked for a differential equation whose solution is the pdf of this distribution, and here it is." -- UKoch (talk) 20:18, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Fisher's noncentral hypergeometric distribution[edit]

Hello BeyondNormality, in Fisher's noncentral hypergeometric distribution I tried to fix the formatting of the formulas, but I'm not sure the outcome is correct. Could you have a look? Thanks! -- UKoch (talk) 20:52, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Looks correct. Thanks for reformatting. BeyondNormality (talk) 23:41, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
