Lorentzian curve

  1. Dec 19, 2012 #1
    Is a lorentzian curve by definition normalized? As far as I can tell it is such that ∫L(x) = 1.

    If we define it as [itex]L(x) = \frac{1}{\pi} \frac{\frac{1}{2} \Gamma}{(x-x_0)^2 + (\frac{1}{2} \Gamma)^2}[/itex], then [itex]\displaystyle \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} L(x) \ dx = 1[/itex].
