Not sure which "latest proposal" you're referring to.
The postings I've sent recently regarding statistics have a similar name to
the math function proposals that we just saw (they both are called
statistics), but really they are orthogonal.
The math functions are a collection of functions that happen to be useful in
The stats class I was working on is a class for computing (currently) second
order statistics of a random variable: mean and standard deviation.
Incidentally, I hope that the proposal to add any such functions would be as a
library seperate from libstdc++. They are too specialized for the core,
