Subtopic: statistical measures
Quote: rank potential errors by the z statistic for proportions; deviation of observed ratio from expected ratio [»englD10_2001]
 Subtopic: running statistic
Quote: trend heuristic for bursting by using one counter per container; start value with bonuses and penalties; burst container when 0 [»heinS4_2002]
 Quote: sliding window statistics by subdividing the window into basic windows; efficient elimination of old data and incorporation of new data [»shasD_2004]
 Subtopic: cumulative, frequency counts
Quote: improvement to Fenwick's algorithm for cumulative symbol frequency counts; use for adaptive, arithmetic coding [»moffA7_1999]
 Subtopic: text correlation
Quote: to correlate 34 terms need to treat item pairs as phrases; text is naturally correlated [»silvC9_1999]
 Subtopic: confidence level
Quote: a statistical result is stronger if fewer subjects yielded a given confidence level
 Subtopic: rankfrequency
Quote: moving people to raw material distributes cities while moving raw materials to people unifies cities; e.g., product of rankfrequency is constant for U.S. cities in 1940 [»zipfGK_1949]
 Quote: the rankfrequency distribution of cities by size leads to a rankfrequency distribution of phone calls by distance [»zipfGK_1949]
 Subtopic: Bernoulli process
Quote: sample code execution as a Bernoulli process using pregenerated random countdowns; fast path is a decrement, compare, and branch [»liblB6_2003]
 Quote: Lovelace showed the steps for computing the Bernoulli numbers with cycles of cycles of operations [»menaLF10_1842, OK]
 Subtopic: limitations of statistics
Quote: economic change not captured by statistical aggregates; constant, deliberate adjustments, every day [»hayeFA9_1945]
 Quote: statistical approximation is irrelevant to grammar; e.g., 'colorless green ideas sleep furiously' is rare but grammatical [»chomN9_1956]
