COMMENTS

The probability P{(x-m)/s > 2} for a normally distributed random variable x with mean m and standard deviation s. In experimental sciences (hypothesis testing), a measured excursion exceeding background "noise" by more than two standard deviations is considered mildly significant if corroborated by additional indications.

FORMULA

P{(x-m)/s > 2} = P{(x-m)/s < -2} = 0.5*erfc(2/sqrt(2)) = erfc(sqrt(2))/2, with erfc(x) being the complementary error function.
