Dear community,

I have an experimental data list having the form of lst={{x1, y1},...}. 
I make the analysis of statistics of the data. The distribution is 
non-Gaussian, as can be checked by various test criteria, and  
visualized by a histogram. I suspect however, that here there may be two 
superimposed Gaussian distributions in which both the means and the 
standard deviations are different.

Among  the Mathematica built-in distributions in I did not succeed to 
find such a bi-modal distribution.  Do you know anything about such a 

Regards, Alexei
