Contraharmonic mean In mathematics, a contraharmonic mean is a function complementary to the harmonic mean. The contraharmonic mean is a special case of the Lehmer mean, formula_1, where p=2.
Contraharmonic mean The name "contraharmonic" may be due to the fact that when taking the mean of only two variables, the contraharmonic mean is as high above the arithmetic mean as the arithmetic mean is above the harmonic mean (i.e., the arithmetic mean of the two variables is equal to the arithmetic mean of their harmonic and contraharmonic means).
Weighted geometric mean Weighted versions of other means can also be calculated. Probably the best known weighted mean is the weighted arithmetic mean, usually simply called the weighted mean. Another example of a weighted mean is the weighted harmonic mean.
Harmonic mean In this special case, the harmonic mean is related to the arithmetic mean formula_12 and the geometric mean formula_13 by
Contraharmonic mean The contraharmonic mean is higher in value than the arithmetic mean and also higher than the root mean square:
Mean The arithmetic mean of a population, or population mean, is denoted "μ". The sample mean (the arithmetic mean of a sample of values drawn from the population) makes a good estimator of the population mean, as its expected value is equal to the population mean (that is, it is an unbiased estimator). The sample mean is a random variable, not a constant, since its calculated value will randomly differ depending on which members of the population are sampled, and consequently it will have its own distribution. For a random sample of "n" observations from a normally distributed population, the sample mean distribution is normally distributed with mean and variance as follows:
Mean The interquartile mean is a specific example of a truncated mean. It is simply the arithmetic mean after removing the lowest and the highest quarter of values.
Riesz mean In mathematics, the Riesz mean is a certain mean of the terms in a series. They were introduced by Marcel Riesz in 1911 as an improvement over the Cesàro mean. The Riesz mean should not be confused with the Bochner–Riesz mean or the Strong–Riesz mean.
Contraharmonic mean where x is a list of values, H is the harmonic mean, G is geometric mean, L is the logarithmic mean, A is the arithmetic mean, R is the root mean square and C is the contraharmonic mean. Unless all values of x are the same, the ≤ signs above can be replaced by <.
The Mean Reds The Mean Reds can mean either one of these things:
Enniskillen The warmest month on record at St Angelo was August 1995 with a mean temperature of (mean maximum , mean minimum , while the coldest month was December 2010, with a mean temperature of (mean maximum , mean minimum .
Doctrine of the Mean “Zhong-ni said, ‘The superior man embodies the course of the Mean; the mean man acts contrary to the course of the Mean."
Mean value theorem Cauchy's mean value theorem can be used to prove l'Hôpital's rule. The mean value theorem is the special case of Cauchy's mean value theorem when .
Mean inter-particle distance Mean inter-particle distance (or mean inter-particle separation) is the mean distance between microscopic particles (usually atoms or molecules) in a macroscopic body.
Mean airway pressure Mean airway pressure typically refers to the mean pressure applied during positive-pressure mechanical ventilation. Mean airway pressure correlates with alveolar ventilation, arterial oxygenation, hemodynamic performance, and barotrauma.
Contraharmonic mean From the formulas for the arithmetic mean and harmonic mean of two variables we have:
Fréchet mean formula_14. This is sometimes called the Generalised f-mean or Quasi-arithmetic mean.
Generalized mean The power mean could be generalized further to the generalized "f"-mean:
Interquartile mean The interquartile mean shares some properties of both the mean and the median:
Lehmer mean for interpolating between minimum and maximum via arithmetic mean and harmonic mean.
