[1507.07940] Non-Gaussian Error Distributions of LMC Distance Moduli Measurements

[ Authors ]

[ Abstract ]
We construct error distributions for a compilation of 232 Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) distance moduli values from de Grijs et al. 2014 that give an LMC distance modulus of (m-M)_{0}=18.49 \pm 0.13 (median and 1\sigma symmetrized error). Central estimates found from weighted mean and median statistics are used to construct the error distributions. The weighted mean error distribution is non-Gaussian — flatter and broader than Gaussian — with more (less) probability in the tails (center) than is predicted by a Gaussian distribution; this could be the consequence of unaccounted-for systematic uncertainties. The median statistics error distribution, which does not make use of the individual measurement errors, is also non-Gaussian — more peaked than Gaussian — with less (more) probability in the tails (center) than is predicted by a Gaussian distribution; this could be the consequence of publication bias and/or the non-independence of the measurements.
