- We try to choose so has a smaller standard
deviation than .
- The best choice is
- which implies
- 1. is constant with zero standard deviation
- 2. Probability of getting a particular
**x**value is . That is, one ``chooses''**x**values to congregate where function**f**is large.

- This is, of course, not realistic as to find
requires solving
(i.e., solving indefinite integral and that's harder than definite integral which is ).
