What is the mathematical relationship between:

1) The Hype cycle against Normal Distribution?

2) The Adoption Curve against Normal Distribution?

This is not a homework assignment nor for academic research.

I simply want to know how these are related so I can better understand marketing.

  • $\begingroup$ The adoption curve looks a lot like the cumulative distribution function for the normal. The hype curve is probably not easily related, though it looks a little bit like the derivative of the normal probability density function. The issue with the second, there, is that on the LHS, the derivative of the normal flattens out, as opposed to the hype curve. $\endgroup$ – Adrian Keister Jun 6 at 19:22
