comment Help solving: Problem on Normal Distribution of Data
Clearly this is a fictional example. Phone call durations do not come from a normal distribution - calculate the probability that a call takes less than 0 seconds, it is not zero!

comment Need good material on multifractal analysis
When I read it, I already knew why multifractals were interesting and what I needed to analyze & why. What I needed was the 'how', and I got that from this book. Riedi does have some interesting papers though, I remember really liking "The Multiscale Nature of Network Traffic: Discovery, Analysis, and Modelling". Also have a look at "Why study multifractal spectra?" by Peter Morters at people.bath.ac.uk/maspm/whystudy.pdf

comment How to show that $\sum\limits_{k=1}^{n-1}\frac{k!k^{n-k}}{n!}$ is asymptotically $\sqrt{\frac{\pi n}{2}}$?
Thanks for all the help. I was expecting something simpler when they said " elementary asymptotic methods", but this will certainly do.
