COMMENTS

In spectroscopy, when comparing absorbtion peak shapes, the functions are first scaled vertically and horizontally to a canonical form with unit height and unit halfheight width. The 4 most common canonical shapes are: rectangular R(x)=1 for x<=1/2 (0 otherwise), Lorentzian L(x)=1/(1+(2x)^2), Gaussian G(x)=exp(log(2)(2x)^2), and sinctype S(x) (see A211269). The areas A under such canonical peaks (integral from inf to +inf) are 1.0 for R(x), (Pi/2)=A019669 for L(x), this constant for G(x), and A211269 for S(x). For a generic peak with height H and halfheight width W belonging to the same canonical family, the area is A*H*W. Hence the practical importance of the constant A.
