We discretize the interval [0,1] with Nd = 100 breakpoints. The numbers 99, 100 and 200 appearing in the formulæ in the table are normalization factors (respectively Nd − 1, Nd and 2Nd). βis a normalization constant for the divergent function 1/f, <a onClick="popup('http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/239/mathml/M16','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/239/mathml/M16">View MathML</a> where γ = 0.57721… is the Euler-Mascheroni constant.
