@inproceedings{Elamir2022OnUO, title={On Uses of Mean Absolute Deviation: Shape Exploring and Distribution Function Estimation}, author={Elsayed A. H. Elamir}, year={2022} }

Mean absolute deviation function is used to explore the pattern and the distribution of the data graphically to enable analysts gaining greater understanding of raw data and to foster quick and a deep understanding of the data as an important fundament for successful data analytic. Furthermore, new nonparametric approaches for estimating the cumulative distribution function based on the mean absolute deviation function are proposed. These new approaches are meant to be a general nonparametricβ¦Β
