    This is a question of understanding notes today:)

    I'm struggling to follow these notes, they are not very well written and a tad sporadic! I was just reading through them and I'm not quite sure what the term ε actually is in this case?

    I am assuming it is a constant although on the first page it states

    Lo= ε (number of pairs if nearest neighbours)

    Now I'm not sure if that is a product of the two terms or it is defining ε?

    It then goes on to discuss estimators of ε?

    This confused me even more! I have attached some photos of the notes sorry they are rather wordy which I know physics and maths people hate!

    I'm the same

    Thanks in advanced! I also realise this question was rather wordy too :P
