This block calculates the empirical variance of its input signal. It is based on the formula (but implemented in a more reliable numerical way):

y = mean(  (u - mean(u))^2  )

The parameter t_eps is used to guard against division by zero (the variance computation starts at <simulation start time> + t_eps and before that time instant y = 0).

The variance of a signal is also equal to its mean power.

This block is demonstrated in the examples UniformNoiseProperties and NormalNoiseProperties.
