Using ranova and multcompare, ranova doen't show significance (p=0.33) but multcompare shows significance between groups (p<0.001)
Note that your anova table doesn't have enough lines--there is no main effect of IndVar, just the IndVar*Time interaction (p=0.3...

How can I evaluate characteristic functions in MatLab?
It seems like your question contains its own answer: mu = 1; sigma = 1; t = -2.5:0.01:2.5; cf = exp(i*mu*t - sigma^2*t.^2/2)...
