n. Statistics
A function whose integral over a given interval gives the probability that the values of a continuous random variable will fall within the interval, used in the construction of a probability distribution.

The contributors use zeta functions to factor polynomials over finite fields, determine the canonical models of arithmetic curves, obtain an expression for the probability density function of the distribution of the trace function on Lie group G, and compute the weight enumerators of Reed-Muller codes.
In this paper we will discuss the probability density function of [[tau].sub.r.sup.([??])], for which we write [p.sub.r.sup.([??])] (.; x) in the case when d [greater than or equal to] 2.
It should be noted that the borders of the interval can be displayed in the parameters of the distribution law explicitly (for example, the boundaries of the interval in the case of the law of equal probability density) or indirectly as the area of definition of this law.
Ideally, the solution to data uncertainty is establishing corresponding probability density function by collected data and putting it into LCA.
The criteria included mean annual data, standard deviation, annual climate cycle, normalized root mean square error (NRMSE), spatial distribution, climate change trend, empirical orthogonal function (EOF), and probability density function (PDF); these criteria are listed in Table 1.
A random matrix is a probability law on a space of matrices, usually given by the joint probability density on its entries:
The probability density function of the correlated log-normal especially is carried out to propose various approximations of the sum distribution.
As it is customary for brittle materials, the strength data are interpreted statistically by assuming that specimen strength obeys a probability density function.

However, the generation of a probability density functions as proposed by the authors required a large amount of training data that were different from the actual test data.
