The frequency measures the number of times an event occurs in a data set.

frequency. You can exploit that to compare datasets with different absolute frequencies: standardize the residuals (by dividing them by their expected deviations). This has a close mathematical … like these: they are called "QQ" (quantile-quantile) plots. This method works well for any dataset. Interpreting the chi-squared statistic becomes a little delicate when the average frequency drops below $5$ or so, but for almost any exploratory application that's no problem. …

This is an empirical version of the "probability integral transform." Suppose you have $n$ data values. Sorting them in ascending order, index them as $$x_1 \le x_2 \le \cdots \le x_n.$$ Replacin …

This follows from the fact that the local effect of the function $R\to R^3$ is to expand values more and more as $R$ increases. We don't actually need any ideas of Calculus to demonstrate this, thoug …

on Fourier Analysis. But in the meantime, the question has been answered in a way that shows "time" and "frequency" may be red herrings: this fundamental property of converting convolution into …
