DISTRIBUTION. By this term is understood the division of an intestate's estate according to law.
     2. The English statute of 22 and 23 Car. II. c. 10, which was itself probably borrowed from the 118th Novel of Justinian, is the foundation of, perhaps, most acts of distribution in the several states. Vide 2 Kent, Com. 342, note; 8 Com.

It follows from the mathematical statistics that if quantities [[eta].sub.1], [[eta].sub.2], ..., [[eta].sub.n] are independent of one another in events of a subensemble and obey Gaussian distributions, the distribution of these parametrically invariant quantities does not depend on the parameters of the Gaussian distributions, and the number n of particles in the subensemble event uniquely determines the distribution of parametrically invariant quantities.
The local output of each node is the local posterior approximated as a Gaussian distribution. On the contrary, in the case that the measurement is not available to the node i, then only the prediction of the particle flow filter will be executed (lines 1-3 of Algorithm 1).

Closed-form expressions of probability of false alarm and probability of miss-detection for the adaptive weighing algorithm with a p-norm detector were computed under the assumption of a Gamma or Gaussian distribution of the test statistic.
Besides that, we integrated the global Gaussian distributions information into a conventional edge-based level set model, proposed in [17].
And this distribution is a Gaussian distribution with multivariable:
The value of the average dental proportion parameter p was computed for each individual and it was tested whether or not the distribution of this parameter in the sample could be described by a Gaussian distribution or a mixture of Gaussian distributions.
Older laser technologies created a Gaussian distribution of intensity with decreasing energy distribution toward the perimeter of the laser field.
In the article titled "Comparison of some tests of fit for the Inverse Gaussian distribution" [1], there were a number of typographical and other errors.
Under the null hypothesis [H.sub.0], corresponding to the absence of any cluster, all the marks come from the same Gaussian distribution:
