Homework Help: Gaussian Smearing

  1. Aug 30, 2013 #1
    I was asked to smear an histogram with a gaussian smearing, but I don't understand what does it mean. Can you please explain me what is a gaussian smearing?
    Thank you

    Gaussian smearing is an approximate step function obtained by integration of a
    Gaussian-approximated delta function...

    Uhm... ok... but how can I implement it in a code? I have to multiply each bin of the histogram with this step function?
