Demonstrates the use of Basic Math and Support Functions to calculate the variance of an input sequence with N samples. Uniformly distributed white noise is taken as input.


The variance of a sequence is the mean of the squared deviation of the sequence from its mean.

This is denoted by the following equation: where, x[n] is the input sequence, N is the number of input samples, and x' is the mean value of the input sequence, x[n].

The mean value x' is defined as:
