    Theory behind Normal/Gaussian distribution pdf

    Hi all

    Many books mention about the pdf of the normal distribution, but where this pdf comes from? I would like to know the
    theory behind the pdf. Can someone point me to the right direction.

    Thank you in advance.

    I think this one should be pretty good, but it's a bit fast (5 minutes).
