Ok, I'm happy with title on this and general layout. Still some clean up to do in the various measures. My notion is just to present the conceptual idea for the measures on this page. Each dispersion measure title would be linked to a wiki page describing that measure in more detail.

3.4 Elliptical Error Probable (EEP)

Need to do so more literature searching on this. I suspect that this includes Hoyt case where rho <> 0. I'm thinking of constraining it to ellipses oriented along horizontal and vertical axis. You could then convert to circle with a simple rescaling.

3.8 Hoyt Distribution Parameters (Bivariate Normal Distribution Parameters)

Think changing name for this to "Hoyt Error Probable" to fit in with other such measures.

I think the two sections

3.10 Radial Standard Deviation of the Rayleigh Distribution
3.11 Rayleigh Distribution Shape Parameter

Should probably be merged. My notion is to swizzle Radial Standard Deviation so that it fits Rayleigh Distribution better. ie sqrt(2) factor.

But why are you interested in keeping RSD alive despite all the confusion surrounding it? David (talk) 22:49, 3 June 2015 (EDT)
