    help with expression()

    Good day forum, I would like to create an axis that will further my illustration of a plot on a logarithmic scale... 10^0, \qquad 10^1, \qquad 10^2, \qquad 10^3, \qquad \ldots This I can achieve, statically, with : axis(2,at=10^seq(0,3,1),labels=expression(10^0,10^1,10^2,10^3), las=1) but...

    I would like to specify a new probability distribution that relates to an event of size M being produced by some process and subsequently detected. Some assumptions : 1) If the event is detected there is no loss of information regarding its size. 2) There are no false detections - An...
