Hey folks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was asked to confirm that the attached discrete function is normalized.

The function to check the normalization that I was provided with is

[tex]\frac{1}{2}\sum^{N}_{i = 1}P_{i}(\Theta)\Delta\Theta_{i} = 1 [/tex]

No matter what I do, I get a number on the order of 10^4, not anything close to 1.

Is there something wrong with the data, or is there something wrong with me? If you look at the first couple of values, you can see that the value is >>1 which I don't understand how I can ever bring that down.
