Another problem which is frequently encountered in the distribution of data is the presence of outliers. 1 where calculated values of electrophilic superdelocalizability (ESDL10) are given for a set of analogues of antimycin A1 , compounds which kill human parasitic worms, Dipetalonema vitae. 1 Physicochemical properties and antifilarial activity of antimycin analogues (reproduced from ref.

These are qualitative factors since to change them is an ‘all or nothing’ change. The other factors such as temperature, pH, and the concentration of reagents are quantitative; for quantitative factors it is necessary to decide the levels which they can adopt. Most enzymes carry out their catalytic function best at a particular pH and temperature, and will cease to function at all if the conditions are changed too far from this optimum. In the case of human enzymes, for example, the optimum temperature is likely to be 37 ◦ C and the range of temperature over which they catalyse reactions may be (say) 32–42 ◦ C.

Various measures may be used to express kurtosis; one known as the moment ratio gives a value of three for a normal distribution. Thus it is possible to judge how far a distribution deviates from normality by calculating values of skewness (= 0 for a normal distribution) and kurtosis. As will be seen later, these measures of how ‘well behaved’ a variable is may be used as an aid to variable selection. 6 it can be seen that the distribution appears to have two means. This is known as a bimodal distribution, which has its own particular set of properties distinct to those of the normal distribution.
