Magnetic Refrigeration: An environment friendly cooling technology

Why does it need to look for an alternate cooling technology? Cooling appliances based on thermodynamic cycle till 1995 used to produce many toxic components Chloroflurocarbon CFC), Hydrochloroflurocarbon (HCFC), potent greenhouse gases (GHG) and other ozone depleting substances (ODC). After gradual prohibition of such gases, the cooling appliances till date producing HFCs which have no …

Spintronics: A technology that slightly deviated from traditional electronics

What calls for an advanced technology based on electron spin? Electronics use the property of electrons called charge to encode information. One way computers store information is by using RAM. RAM is comprised of billions of capacitors and to store information computer sends a large number of electrons which are absorbed by the capacitor plate …

Bivariate Gaussian Distribution

Hacking the Bivariate Gaussian Distribution

In one of our earlier posts, we have seen how we can visually relate the parts of the one-dimensional Gaussian distribution equation. In this post, we will follow the same strategy to understand the terms that comes up with a Multivariable Gaussian distribution. We will focus on the Bivariate Gaussian distribution as distributions of higher-order …

Normal distribution visual explanation

Gaussian Distribution Explained Visually

Gaussian distribution appears in various parts of science and engineering. Apart from a distribution often appear in nature, it has got important properties such as its relation to Central Limit Theorem (CLT). The figure above shows one-dimensional Gaussian distributions of various mean and variance values. Libraries like NumPy provide functions that can return Gaussian distribution …
