AbstractThe statistics of the probability function used in the analytical calculation of the fault-plane problem is shown, by numerical means, to closely approximate that of a gaussian distribution function. The definitions of error are obtained from gaussian statistics. A numerical example is given for the Alaska earthquake of July 10, 1958.
