Purpose


  Compute Gaussian curve given the mean, sigma and area.

Major Topics


  Curve and Surface Fitting

Calling Sequence


  YVALS = GAUSS1(XVALS, [MEAN, SIGMA, AREA], SKEW=skew)

Description



  This routine computes the values of a Gaussian function whose
  X-values, mean, sigma, and total area are given. It is meant to be
  a demonstration for curve-fitting.
  XVALS can be an array of X-values, in which case the returned
  Y-values are an array as well. The second parameter to GAUSS1
  should be an array containing the MEAN, SIGMA, and total AREA, in
  that order.

Inputs


  X - Array of X-values.
  [MEAN, SIGMA, AREA] - the mean, sigma and total area of the
                        desired Gaussian curve.

Input Keyword Parameters



  SKEW - You may specify a skew value. Default is no skew.
  PEAK - if set then AREA is interpreted as the peak value rather
          than the area under the peak.

Returns



  Returns the array of Y-values.

Example



  p = [2.2D, 1.4D, 3000.D]
  x = dindgen(200)*0.1 - 10.
  y = gauss1(x, p)
  Computes the values of the Gaussian at equispaced intervals
  (spacing is 0.1). The gaussian has a mean of 2.2, standard
  deviation of 1.4, and total area of 3000.
