(2014) heuristic over a range of bimodal distributions as well as bell-shaped and positively skewed distributions.
Once the eigengenes with long tail or bimodal distributions are detected, SPLOM is generated.
Values of [[gamma.sub.2] < -1.2 may suggest that the distribution is bimodal Darlington (1970) but bimodal distributions can have high kurtosis if the modes are distant from the shoulders; see, for example, Hildebrand (1971), Groeneveld and Meeden (1984), Blanda and MacGillivary (1988) and Wang and Serfling (2005).
To evaluate the persistence of these bimodal distributions, data from 2011 CGL-A were evaluated for bimodal distribution.
Exceptions are the Laplace, uniform, and symmetric bimodal distributions, which the ratios of ranks are somewhat less than those of scores.
Bimodal distributions are probably derived from subpopulations derived from primary and secondary kernels from double-kernel spikelets (Doehlert et al., 2002, 2004; Takeda and Frey, 1980).
