In mathematics, **cone-shape distribution function** is one of the members of Cohen's class distribution function. It was first proposed by Yunxin Zhao, Les E. Atlas, and Robert J. Marks in 1990. The reason why this distribution is so named is because its kernel function in domain looks like two cones. The advantage of this special kernel function is that it can completely remove the cross-term between two components that have same center frequency, but on the other hand, the cross-term results form components with the same time center can not be removed by the cone-shape kernel.

### Famous quotes containing the words function and/or distribution:

“Uses are always much broader than functions, and usually far less contentious. The word *function* carries overtones of purpose and propriety, of concern with why something was developed rather than with how it has actually been found useful. The *function* of automobiles is to transport people and objects, but they are used for a variety of other purposes—as homes, offices, bedrooms, henhouses, jetties, breakwaters, even offensive weapons.”

—Frank Smith (b. 1928)

“The man who pretends that the *distribution* of income in this country reflects the *distribution* of ability or character is an ignoramus. The man who says that it could by any possible political device be made to do so is an unpractical visionary. But the man who says that it ought to do so is something worse than an ignoramous and more disastrous than a visionary: he is, in the profoundest Scriptural sense of the word, a fool.”

—George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
