Binomial Distribution

The last row of Pascal's triangle (the binomial distribution) approaches a sampled Gaussian function as the number of rows increases.D.3 Since Lagrange interpolation (elementary polynomial interpolation) is equal to binomially windowed sinc interpolation [301,134], it follows that Lagrange interpolation approaches Gaussian-windowed sinc interpolation at high orders.
