Bartlett S Function; Estimating Likelihood Ratios Needed for an Experiment

  • Byron P. Roe


We examine in this chapter some miscellaneous tools. If our distribution function is very far from a normal distribution, estimates can be biased and also it is sometimes hard to interpret the non-gaussian errors which result. The use of the Bartlett S function is a technique to introduce new variables to make the distribution function closer to normal.
