 OFFSET -6,1 COMMENTS The probability P{(x-m)/s > 5} 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 five standard deviations is considered practically certain, unless it is an isolated case among tens of thousands of iterated measurements. LINKS Stanislav Sykora, Table of n, a(n) for n = -6..1994 Wikipedia, Normal distribution FORMULA P{(x-m)/s > 5} = P{(x-m)/s < -5} = 0.5*erfc(5/sqrt(2)), with erfc(x) being the complementary error function.
