I heard a guy mention in a debate that some math calculation didn't obey Gaussian statistics. It was a debate re: the economy (not important here, though).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was curious what was meant by "Gaussian statistics" and would appreciate if anyone could offer a sort of layman's definition. Thanks so much!
