Homework Statement
Hi
If I have a Lorentzian distribution given by
[tex]
f(x) = \frac{\Gamma}{x^2+\Gamma^2},
[/tex]
then is Γ the FWHM?
Not quite. Just set f(x) to half its maximum value and solve for x. You'll get two solutions. Their difference is the full width at half maximum.Homework Statement
