What are the columns "mu time" and "sigma^2 time" of the benchmark table in the Sampling subsection?

In statistics mu is often used to describe the average, sigma the standard deviation and sigma^2 the variance. It was absolutely unnecessary to use this notation here (especially because standard deviation, not variance was measured). I fixed that and also added how many samples were generated per run (10M), thanks! Btw in case you didn't find the link within the article, the benchmark is available within Mir:
