Hi everyone!

I'm a statistician working in online media, and I'm largely self taught in programming, I like working things through for myself which is why I'm always asking about guides to do things.

I have more ideas than I have time to develop so these sites are always a huge help.

comment Norm of convolution of $n$ Gaussians
Yes, I think I can see how you'd get that too, but then convolutions aren't my string point.....

comment Using mean and standard deviation of a normal distribution
Is this a homework assignment? It smells like homework to me, and it should be tagged as such. Also, what have you tried so far? What do you already know about transforming Normal random variables etc?

Fair enough, it seemed a little more precise since they were mentioned in the question.

@Dominic Michaelis "Fourier" should be capitalised, it is a proper noun. My edit was correct!!

comment Probability of Defective coins
Yeah, given that you've just seen something incredibly unlikely, we could use Bayesian inference to update our views about which coin was selected and the probability of getting a head next time. The question is legitimate.

Hi! Welcome to the site. Usually to get the best quality answers it is a good idea to say where you have encountered the problem and to what level you understand the problem, so that responders can give sufficient information. Also, have you searched the site for any info on this topic already as this seems like quite a generic question? Further, do you mean Fourier series, rather than Fourier integrals?
