I am writing a research paper.

in the methods and material section I wrote down what I calculated and showed how I calculated it.

I calculated distribution coefficient 


Now the readers do'nt know what that is. So where do I put in a definiation of what it is?  I don't think I define in the methods section.

Do I define it in the intro?

thanks

If that's the significant piece of information that your research is interested in, then yes, it goes in the intro, as well as why it's a measure of what you're studying. Otherwise, if it's just a random statistical analysis, then it just goes in the methods, and a quick sentence might do.

Good luck.
