One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Having or involving two modes, in particular (of a statistical distribution) having two maxima.
- ‘We have studied how halothane molecules fluctuate between the two maxima of the bimodal distribution and we observed a different mechanism at low and high anesthetic concentrations.’
- ‘We predict that similar measurements of additional species will reveal a bimodal frequency distribution with the two peaks corresponding to alternative strategies.’
- ‘A number of initial conditions can be realized experimentally leading to either unimodal or bimodal distributions.’
- ‘We then divided BC into quartiles according to bimodal BP distribution.’

- ‘Laying patterns were cyclical and similar among years, showing a bimodal distribution of clutches each year.’
- ‘The top-of seam coal balls show a bimodal distribution; five of them have values close to mid-seam coal-ball areas, but two have values similar to known marine limestones.’
- ‘Some helical parameters even exhibited a clear bimodal distribution.’
- ‘Such a bimodal distribution may be of more general significance and can be observed with other similar neutral fluorescence probes.’
- ‘We suggest that such long-tail and bimodal distributions may be used as selection mechanisms in developmental switches and for assigning cell identity.’
- ‘This data set exhibits a bimodal joint posterior distribution, with modes favoring different preferred migration directions.’
- ‘This bimodal distribution indicates in situ production of thiols from two different phytoplankton communities in Galveston Bay during this period.’
