## The Moment - Moment (mathematics) - Netflix

In mathematics, a moment is a specific quantitative measure, used in both mechanics and statistics, of the shape of a set of points. If the points represent mass, then the zeroth moment is the total mass, the first moment divided by the total mass is the center of mass, and the second moment is the rotational inertia. If the points represent probability density, then the zeroth moment is the total probability (i.e. one), the first moment is the mean, the second central moment is the variance, the third central moment is the skewness, and the fourth central moment (with normalization and shift) is the kurtosis. The mathematical concept is closely related to the concept of moment in physics. For a distribution of mass or probability on a bounded interval, the collection of all the moments (of all orders, from 0 to ∞) uniquely determines the distribution (Hausdorff moment problem). The same is not true on unbounded intervals (Hamburger moment problem).

## The Moment - Normalised moments - Netflix

The normalised n-th central moment or standardised moment is the n-th central moment divided by σn; the normalised n-th central moment of the random variable X is

These normalised central moments are dimensionless quantities, which represent the distribution independently of any linear change of scale. For an electric signal, the first moment is its DC level, and the 2nd moment is proportional to its average power.

μ n σ n = E [ ( X − μ ) n ] σ n . {\displaystyle {\frac {\mu _{n}}{\sigma ^{n}}}={\frac {\operatorname {E} \left[(X-\mu )^{n}\right]}{\sigma ^{n}}}.}
