The Gauge chart uses needles to show information as a reading on dial, such that the value is analyzed against colored data range. It combines the categorical values with subjective approach such that a number can be assigned to each category. Whereas, the Bullet graph is a modified bar graph where the value of the single variable is shown for different categories.
The Gauge graph gives the minimum, maximum and current value at a high speed without interpreting the figures. But this graph consumes a lot of visual space in the dashboard and includes lots of chart junk.
The bullet graph can be used for comparisons between different categories according to the same subjective approach, that provides better visualization than the other types of charts. But this graph can confuse the person new to data visualization, as it distracts the reader with many shades of one color shown in background.

Turbid water is muddy or cloudy water. Sunlight is necessary for most life forms; thus turbid water is considered a threat to wetland ecosystems. Passive filtration systems are commonly used to reduce turbidity in wetlands. Suspended solids are measured in mg/l. Is there a relation between input and output turbidity for a passive filtration system and, if so, is it statistically significant? At a wetlands environment in Illinois, the inlet and outlet turbidity of a passive filtration system have been measured. A random sample of measurements are shown below. (Reference: EPA Wetland Case Studies.)
Reading 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Inlet (mg/l) 59.1 25.7 70.5 71.0 37.6 43.5 13.1 24.2 16.7 49.1 67.6 31.7
Outlet (mg/l) 18.2 14.3 15.3 17.5 13.1 8.0 4.1 4.4 4.3 5.8 16.3 7.1
Use a 1% level of significance to test the claim that there is a monotone relationship (either way) between the ranks of the inlet readings and outlet readings.
(a) Rank-order the inlet readings using 1 as the largest data value. Also rank-order the outlet readings using 1 as the largest data value. Then construct a table of ranks to be used for a Spearman rank correlation test.

Can everything in category theory be restated in a sufficiently expressive type theory?
I've been reading the homotopy type theory (HoTT) book as well as some articles on ncat lab
It seems that HoTT can be interpreted as the syntax for an -groupoid or more generally an ( ,1)-category. That article and related articles on ncatlab seem to suggest that within an arbitrary category C the objects can be translated as types (as in HoTT types) and morphisms can be translated as dependent types. Thus a category can be interpreted as an "abstract data structure" and functors between categories are just ordinary (type theoretic) functions between data types/structures in type theory.
Is that translation correct, and if so, does that suggest that any categorical notion has a simple reformulation (without much work) to a homotopy type theoretic form? Coming from a computational background, for some reason, just replacing the word "category" with "abstract data structure" and a few other terms in category theory with type theoretic terminology seems to make category theory much more intuitive than it appears.

A soldier on a firing range fires an 8-shot burst from an assault weapon at a full automatic rate of 1000 rounds per minute. Each bullet has a mass of 7.42 g and a speed of 291 m/s relative to the ground as it leaves the barrel of the weapon.
Calculate the average recoil force exerted on the weapon during that burst.

What does the third condition mean in the definition of a well-posed PDE (in the sense of Hadamard)?
A PDE is called well-posed (in the sense of Hadamard), if
1. A solution exists.
2. The solution is unique.
3. The solution should depend continuously on the initial and/or boundary data.
As far as I have understood, it means that the solution does not undergo a sudden deviation as we increment/decrement the initial/boundary data by a little amount.
Does it mean the same? How can I interpret this mathematically?

I am reading a study in which the mean age of a population is 41 years. The mode and median are however both 35 years. I do not have access to the raw data.
How I can interpret the difference between the mean and the mode/median?
