Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • adj bimodal of a distribution; having or occurring with two modes
    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • bimodal Having two modes. In a table of frequencies the mode is the most frequent measure. If the curve of frequencies has two maxima it is called bimodal.

In literature:

These cross-over values were plotted and gave a bimodal curve with modes 7 units apart.

Two spawning periods may account for the bimodal size distribution of young-of-the-year observed in my study.

In science:

In fact, the distribution of ∆Ω/Ω so far (Table 1) looks bimodal, though we should be wary of small number statistics.
Rotational Evolution During Type I X-Ray Bursts
If further observations show this bimodal distribution to be true, this might indicate that the expansion of the atmosphere is less for the ν0 ≈ 550 Hz objects, for example, because of pure He rather then mixed H/He ignition.
Rotational Evolution During Type I X-Ray Bursts
One often takes a Gaussian distribution, though another popular choice is is the bimodal distribution, also the called ±J distribution, in which the interactions have values +1 and −1 with equal probability.
Computer Science in Physics
The data is shown in Fig. 2 for Gaussian and bimodal disorder (in both cases J = 1), and the exponential scaling for Lb vs. inverse random field strength squared is clearly seen.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
It is also worth pointing out that the reasoning for stiff spins does not work for the bimodal distribution (since it is bounded), and indeed we observe as expected a similar Lb scaling for both the Gaussian and bimodal disorders.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
The bimodal case suffers from the fact that the ground states are highly degenerate at fractional field strength values.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
The break-up length scale Lb versus inverse random field strength (1/∆)2 for bimodal and Gaussian disorder (filled circles and empty squares, respectively), calculated from PF M (Lb ) = 0.5.
Susceptibility and Percolation in 2D Random Field Ising Magnets
The theory was initially numerical checked with the Monte Carlo (MC) method by Chen, Ferrenberg and Landau (CFL), who studied the 8-state random-bond Potts model with a bimodal self-dual distribution.
Critical dynamics and universality of the random-bond Potts ferromagnet with tri-distributed quenched disorders
Working with the bimodal distribution in Eq.(2.11) our results are compatible with the RG-phase diagram drawn in Fig.5.

The Random-bond Potts model in the large-q limit
The phase diagram is studied considering the flow of the renormalized joint probability distributions of couplings and fields. A continuous (Gaussian) and a discrete (delta-bimodal) initial symmetric probability distributions for the random fields with variance H0 are particularly considered.

We consider both a continuous (Gaussian) and a discrete (delta-bimodal) initial symmetric probability distributions for the random fields with variance H0 .

In each figure, we show the results for either the Gaussian or the delta-bimodal probability distributions calculated by the exact methodology considering a dF = 3 DHL with N = 7 hierarchies which correspond to NS ∼ 1.2e + 6 and NB ∼ 2.1e + 6 sites and bonds respectively.

In figure Fig. 7, the behavior of the internal energy as function of the temperature and field strength is presented for the Gaussian model (the delta-bimodal one being very similar).
