Suppose a rectangle is 2 units high and 1/2 unit wide. The area is 1.
If an integral is 1 (area under a curve), it could be a "narrow" curve, such as the one you have mentioned. Such a small value of c is an indication of this.
I am struggling with this since hours!
How is it possible then, that for example if c = 0.1, a = 1.0 / (0.1 * sqrt(2.0 * PI)) = 3.9894228.the gaussian function is
This integral is 1 if and only if .
I mean how can the integral be one, if g(0) is larger than one??
Any ideas what my mistake is here?
Thanks a lot!!!
