normalized histogram:  A histogram whose distribution has been adjusted so as to have as close to a normalized (bell-shaped) distribution as possible.  The data value that occurs most frequently will be near the center of the histogram.  Multimodal histograms are those which have two or more significant peaks in their distribution and cannot usually be satisfactorily normalized.
