Package welford implements a one-pass algorithm for computing mean and variance. Knuth attributes this algorithm to B.P. Welford in The Art Of Computer Programming, Volume 2.

For an explanation of why you might want to calculate variance this way, see http://www.johndcook.com/standard_deviation.html and http://www.johndcook.com/blog/2008/09/26/comparing-three-methods-of-computing-standard-deviation/

For documentation on this package see http://godoc.org/github.com/eclesh/welford

Quick start

$ go get github.com/eclesh/welford
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/eclesh/welford
$ go test

type Stats

type Stats struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

A Stats gathers statistics on values fed into it.

func New

func New() *Stats

New returns a new Stats.

func (*Stats) Add

func (s *Stats) Add(val float64)

Add feeds a new value into the Stats.

func (*Stats) Count

func (s *Stats) Count() uint64

Count returns the total number of values seen.

func (*Stats) Max

func (s *Stats) Max() float64

Max returns the maximum value seen.

func (*Stats) Mean

func (s *Stats) Mean() float64

Mean returns the mean of all values seen.

func (*Stats) Min

func (s *Stats) Min() float64

Min returns the minimum value seen.

func (*Stats) Reset

func (s *Stats) Reset()

Reset sets all counters to zero.

func (*Stats) Stddev
