I'm sometimes missing a short path to the *definition* of a Mathematica function. Perhaps somebody here could give me a hint. Example: StandardDeviation I'm double clicking the keyword in the notebook, press F1 and arrive in the help browser which tells me that "StandardDeviation" is the standard deviation. Fine, I almost expected that. But now, how is this quantity defined? This is a simple example, of course, but I admit that I forget sometimes if it was the sum of the cuadratic differences or the square root of it, was it 1/n or 1/(n-1)? But the same holds for all functions which frequently are defined e.g. by power series or integrals. I personally would like to see this definition in the help browser. Sorry again for the perhaps trivial question. Regards, Wolfgang
