1. A transformation applied uniformly to each element in a set of data so that the set has some specific statistical property. For example, monthly measurements of the rainfall in London might be normalised by dividing each one by the total for the year to give a profile of rainfall throughout the year.
This would be that there is, forsooth, no need for any normalisation, or for any normal working-day!
To a similar work of normalisation we owe those creatures of the myth-maker, the quantity theory and the wages-fund.
