Yes, the normal distribution curve is the same thing as the Gaussian curve. Both terms refer to the same probability distribution that is symmetric about the mean, showing that data near the mean are more frequent in occurrence than data far from the mean.

This distribution is characterized by its bell-shaped curve and is defined by two parameters: the mean (μ) and the standard deviation (σ). The mean determines the location of the center of the curve, and the standard deviation determines the height and width of the curve.

The normal (or Gaussian) distribution is a fundamental concept in statistics and is widely used in many fields, including natural and social sciences, to model real-world phenomena.
