Feature #10228

Statistics module

Added by gogotanaka (Kazuki Tanaka) over 6 years ago. Updated about 6 years ago.

Target version:


I'm gonna implement some features related with statistics to Math module now.

Like that ->

But I am afraid that Math module becomes too complex and suppose such a feature should be apart from Math module's responsibility.

So I'd like to propose Ruby provides Statistics module. (There are plenty of room for discussion.)

As you know, python3.4 has already started to provide Statistics module as Standard Library.
(However these are not enough, I am impressed and think that is awesome trying.)

I want Statistics module which has the features of python's Statistics module and some functions related with numerical analysis.

It should be helpful to make people we couldn't reach so far have interest in Ruby.

And it is important to provide as "core or standard library".

But I know there are so many reasons we should not do that, so I want to hear your opinion.

Thank you.
