A Lorentzian function is a singlepeaked function that decays gradually on each side of the peak. Lorentzian distribution is given by,  [2511] The general forms of Lorentzian and Gaussian distributions are shown in Figure 2511. The Lorentzian distribution has a much smaller degree of tailing than Gaussian distribution. Figure 2511. General forms of Lorentzian and Gaussian distributions.
