# MATLAB Gaussian Pulse

## Gaussian pulse shape description:

The diagram of a Gaussian is a trademark symmetric "ringer bend" shape. The boundary an is the stature of the bend's pinnacle, b is the situation of the focal point of the pinnacle and c (the standard deviation, some of the time called the Gaussian RMS width) controls the width of the "bell".

Gaussian capacities are frequently used to address the likelihood thickness capacity of a typically dispersed irregular variable with anticipated value µ = b and difference σ2 = c2.

## Where is gaussian pulse used?

• Gaussian functions are generally utilized in insights to depict the typical circulations, in signal handling to characterize Gaussian channels, in picture preparing where two-dimensional Gaussians are utilized for Gaussian foggy spots.
• In science, Gaussian pulse is used to settle heat conditions and dispersion conditions and to characterize the Weierstrass change.
