Statistical Analysis of Performance Data Part 0 - Primer

As I have announced a few weeks ago, this article kicks off a new series about analyzing performance data. The individual articles will discuss different aspects of correctly working with the collected data. They will provide the necessary mathematical and statistical background for processing and visualizing the data.

Later parts will be about correcting data sets by removing values, histogram and value distribution.
