A bit of food for later thought

Posted 11-06-2012 at 02:35 AM by Nebula
Warning contains some pretty crazy ideas.
And some maths gobbledy goop

So I was playing around with the data in Kale's topic:
This one

So anyone I had a bit of fun plotting a few things. The first one is the average compound value as a function of LK.

(LK on the x axis, value as a fraction of the range on the right)

It reminds me of an arctan function. Or even the Michaelis-Menten equation for ezyme kinetics (lol).
The main thing that I want to point out is, it looks like the average value approaches a certain number as luck increases. By the looks of it, it is about 30% of the range.

Next I look at the random distribution of the compounds. I do not have the best information to work them out exactly, however they are far from symmetric. This makes computing a standard deviation rather troublesome, well graphically anyway. I guess I will have to do it manually when I have a bit more time.
I will say that some look like 1/x whist others look more like Bell curves that are a bit slanted, well skewed.

The most frequent compound it not the average. Sadly I am not incredibly familiar with statistics, so I probably will not go much further into this matter.

    Needs more data to test its fit to distributions~

    Getting data would be the difficult part. I probably need 500 points for 10 values of lk to get anywhere at all. I may be able to get 1000 tortoise shells but that would only be a start.
    Even then, not sure what to do next.
