Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am about to begin my studies as an experimentalist and I keep hearing about these terms when someone represents his data as histograms.

Can some one here, please, give me a clear explanation about their meanings.

My background is theory and you can use as much mathematics as you can!

Thanks a lot in advance,
