# Statistics Symbols

This page is specifically for people in EGR 103 and represents a concordance of sorts among the lectures and the two textbooks with respect to different symbols for statistical quantities.

## Symbols

The entries in the "Palm" column are taken from William J. Palm III's **Introduction to Matlab 7 for Engineers, 2/e**^{[1]} book,
while those in the "Chapra" column are taken from Steven C. Chapra's **Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists, 2/e**^{[2]} book. Entries in the "EGR 103" column, when not taken from Chapra or Palm, have been developed over the course of several years' of EGR 103 lectures.

## Questions

Post your questions by editing the discussion page of this article. Edit the page, then scroll to the bottom and add a question by putting in the characters *{{Q}}, followed by your question and finally your signature (with four tildes, i.e. ~~~~). Using the {{Q}} will automatically put the page in the category of pages with questions - other editors hoping to help out can then go to that category page to see where the questions are. See the page for Template:Q for details and examples.
