comment Connections between the solution of simple ordinary equation, normal distribution and heat equation
Do you see a connection between the heat equation and the above ode? Both have the normal distribution as a solution, is this a coincidence?

comment Connections between the solution of simple ordinary equation, normal distribution and heat equation
Thank you. Ok, I understand that but doesn't it show that the normal distribution is the simplest and in a way most natural unimodal distribution?

Well, no, I think it is still helpful! Please keep it! It would be great if you could find the connection between the diffusion equation and the above ode :-)

"it seems like there should be something deeper and more 'physical' than that" - I feel the same way! Thank you

@Chinny84: I do, but I don't see the connection between this pde/ the normal distribution and the above simple ode.

comment Can a differential equation be linear or nonlinear at the same time?
@GitGud: My point is not that both differential equations share the same solution but that both differential equations are essentially the same!
