Normal Location and Scale

This litte application sends the y-coordinates of the points which are normal distributed (pseudo-)random numbers to the server.
There, location and scale of the sample are estimated using the Statistics software R.
The return values are plotted and displayed.

The computed estimates are:

  • mean, standard deviation: red (non-robust!)
  • median and MAD: black (most-robust!)
  • radius-minimax estimator: green (optimally robust; cf. Rieder et al. (2008))

By changing the y-position of the four movable points you should recognize the instability (non-robustness) of mean and standard deviation in contrast to the robust estimates; e.g., move one of the four movable points to the top of the plot.
