Notice that the contours, instead of being diamonds and rectangles, have become much more circular. The reason for this is briefly as follows: convolution of a rectangle with itself many times approachs the limit of a Gaussian function. (This is a well-known result called the ``central-limit theorem.'' It is explained in section .) It happens that the convolution of a triangle with itself is already a good approximation to the Gaussian function z(x)= e-x2. The convolution in y gives z(x,y)=e-x2-y2= e-r2, where r is the radius of the circle. When the triangle on the 1-axis differs in width from the triangle on the 2-axis, then the circles become ellipses.
