A collection of fitting functions for various distributions.

plot_normal( x,params,hAx,plot_num,fontsize )
function plot_normal( x,params,hAx,plot_num,fontsize )
% plot the normal distribution with parameter "u" and "sig2"
% 
% the distribution is given by:
%
%        p(r) = sqrt(1/2/pi/sig^2)*exp(-((r-u)^2)/(2*sig^2))
%
% format:   plot_normal( x,params,hAx,plot_num,fontsize )
%
% input:    x         - X axis, for the plot
%           params    - the distribution parameter, RMS error and VAR or CRB
%           hAx       - where to plot the distribution curve
%           plot_num  - since the curve is added with a text to the axes,
%                       this parameter specifies where the text should be displayed
%                       and what color to choose for the curve
%           fontsize  - size of the font of the text, default 9
%
%
% example:  plot_normal( x,fit_ML_normal(data),hAx,3 )
%
