Class "Norm"

The normal distribution has density $$f(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}\sigma} e^{-(x-\mu)^2/2\sigma^2}$$ where $\mu$ is the mean of the distribution and $\sigma$ the standard deviation. C.f. rnorm

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form Norm(mean, sd). This object is a normal distribution.
