New math blog

John Moeller started a new blog called on Topology. Today’s post looks at how the Gaussian distribution behaves as dimension increases.

So the points that follow the distribution mostly sit in a thin shell around the mean. But the density function still says that the density is highest at the mean. Now that’s weird.

A week ago Moeller wrote a post on a similar topic, looking at the volumes of spheres and cubes as dimension increases.
