 OFFSET -4,1 COMMENTS The probability P{(x-m)/s > 4} 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 four standard deviations is considered significant, unless it is an isolated case among thousands of iterated measurements. LINKS Stanislav Sykora, Table of n, a(n) for n = -4..1996 Wikipedia, Normal distribution FORMULA P{(x-m)/s > 4} = P{(x-m)/s < -4} = 0.5*erfc(4/sqrt(2)) = erfc(2*sqrt(2))/2, with erfc(x) being the complementary error function.
