F-test, Advanced Statistics

A test for equality of the variances of the two populations having normal distributions, based on the ratio of the variances of the sample of observations taken from each. Most frequently encountered in the analysis of variance, where testing whether the particular variances are the same tests also for the equality of a set of means.
