Post-TeX notes

  • I would invite corrections to the notation used for expectation ($\mathbb{E}$) and probability ($\mathbb{P}$) here (I am no probablist).
Yes, as for me (a probabilist), these notations are good now. --Boris Tsirelson 19:34, 24 July 2012 (CEST)
  • I am unsure about the equation following the sentence "Some idea of the accuracy of (2) may be obtained by comparing it with the approximate value of the left-hand side of (2) which is obtained by the central limit theorem in the form", should the square-root in the denominator of the RHS include the $t$ or not? It is difficult to tell from the original images and I do not have access to the literature at present.

Yes, it was not clear. But I, being a probabilist, took t outside the root. :-) --Boris Tsirelson 19:34, 24 July 2012 (CEST)
Thanks for both of those Boris --Jjg 19:37, 24 July 2012 (CEST)
