Nice article by wolframalpha: interesting information about the curve we often call the Normal Distribution [article]: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/NormalDistribution.html
Wolfframalpha can be used to make simple or very complex maths calculations: http://www.wolframalpha.com/
This is quite an interesting bunch of articles on statistics: http://www.graphpad.com/guides/prism/6/statistics/index.htm?stat_fitting_a_gaussian_distributio.htm
A more general use of this curve is labeled as the Gaussian function: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaussian_function
The Guassian function is used for:
- signal processors (Gaussian filters)
- image processing (Gaussian blur)
- in maths they are used to solve heat equations and DE equations and define the Weierstrass transform.
- natural sciences
- social sciences
- molecular orbitals
- in scale space for computer vision and image processing
- to define some artifical neural networks
- fluorescence microscopy
