Standardize

Standardize[list]
shifts and rescales the elements of list to have zero mean and unit sample variance.
Standardize
shifts the elements in list by and rescales them to have unit sample variance.
Standardize
shifts by and scales by .
  • Standardize shifts by a location and rescales by a scale estimated from the elements of list.
  • Common choices for and include:
MeanStandardDeviationzero mean and unit variance
Meanshift to mean 0
Medianshift by the median
StandardDeviationscale to have unit variance
