The formula 'StandardDeviation' returns the standard deviation of a matrix over the rows or the columns of that matrix, depending on the chosen dimension.
The matrix you want to know the standard deviation of.
The dimension to take the standard deviation over. 1 means downwards (over rows), 2 means rightwards (over columns).
In the following example the formula 'StandardDeviation' is used to take the standard deviation over the columns.
|Column1 ||Column2 ||Column3 |
|3 ||2 ||1 |
|1 ||3 ||5 |
As you see the results are the standard deviations of the rows of the matrix.
