A function with compound definition ( Example 15 From "mathematical expectation; general random variables")

The pair { X , Y } has joint density f X Y ( t , u ) = 1 / 2 on the square region bounded by u = 1 + t , u = 1 - t , u = 3 - t , and u = t - 1 .

W = X for max { X , Y } 1 2 Y for max { X , Y } > 1 = I Q ( X , Y ) X + I Q c ( X , Y ) 2 Y

where Q = { ( t , u ) : max { t , u } 1 } = { ( t , u ) : t 1 , u 1 } .

Determine E [ W ] and Var [ W ] .

ANALYTIC SOLUTION

The intersection of the region Q and the square is the set for which 0 t 1 and 1 - t u 1 . Reference to Figure 11.3.2 shows three regions of integration.

E [ W ] = 1 2 0 1 1 - t 1 t d u d t + 1 2 0 1 1 1 + t 2 u d u d t + 1 2 1 2 t - 1 3 - t 2 u d u d t = 11 / 6 1 . 8333

A function with compound definition

f X Y ( t , u ) = 3 on 0 u t 2 1
Z = I Q ( X , Y ) X + I Q c ( X , Y ) for Q = { ( t , u ) : u + t 1 }

The value t 0 where the line u = 1 - t and the curve u = t 2 meet satisfies t 0 2 = 1 - t 0 .

E [ Z ] = 3 0 t 0 t 0 t 2 d u d t + 3 t 0 1 t 0 1 - t d u d t + 3 t 0 1 1 - t t 2 d u d t = 3 4 ( 5 t 0 - 2 )

For E [ Z 2 ] replace t by t 2 in the integrands to get E [ Z 2 ] = ( 25 t 0 - 1 ) / 20 .

Using t 0 = ( 5 - 1 ) / 2 0 . 6180 , we get Var [ Z ] = ( 2125 t 0 - 1309 ) / 80 0 . 0540 .

Standard deviation and the Chebyshev inequality

In Example 5 from "Functions of a Random Variable," we show that if X N ( μ , σ 2 ) then Z = X - μ σ N ( 0 , 1 ) . Also, E [ X ] = μ and Var [ X ] = σ 2 . Thus

P | X - μ | σ t = P ( | X - μ | t σ ) = 2 Φ ( t ) - 1

For the normal distribution, the standard deviation σ seems to be a natural measure of the variation away from the mean.

For a general distribution with mean μ and variance σ 2 , we have the

Chebyshev inequality

P | X - μ | σ a 1 a 2 or P ( | X - μ | a σ ) 1 a 2

In this general case, the standard deviation appears as a measure of the variation from the mean value. This inequality is useful in many theoretical applications as wellas some practical ones. However, since it must hold for any distribution which has a variance, the bound is not a particularly tight. It may be instructive to comparethe bound on the probability given by the Chebyshev inequality with the actual probability for the normal distribution.

t = 1:0.5:3; p = 2*(1 - gaussian(0,1,t));c = ones(1,length(t))./(t.^2); r = c./p;h = [' t Chebyshev Prob Ratio'];m = [t;c;p;r]';disp(h) t Chebyshev Prob Ratiodisp(m) 1.0000 1.0000 0.3173 3.15151.5000 0.4444 0.1336 3.3263 2.0000 0.2500 0.0455 5.49452.5000 0.1600 0.0124 12.8831 3.0000 0.1111 0.0027 41.1554

DERIVATION OF THE CHEBYSHEV INEQUALITY

Let A = { | X - μ | a σ } = { ( X - μ ) 2 a 2 σ 2 } . Then a 2 σ 2 I A ( X - μ ) 2 .

Upon taking expectations of both sides and using monotonicity, we have

a 2 σ 2 P ( A ) E [ ( X - μ ) 2 ] = σ 2

from which the Chebyshev inequality follows immediately.

We consider three concepts which are useful in many situations.

Definition . A random variable X is centered iff E [ X ] = 0 .

X ' = X - μ is always centered.

Definition . A random variable X is standardized iff E [ X ] = 0 and Var [ X ] = 1 .

X * = X - μ σ = X ' σ is standardized

Definition . A pair { X , Y } of random variables is uncorrelated iff

E [ X Y ] - E [ X ] E [ Y ] = 0

It is always possible to derive an uncorrelated pair as a function of a pair { X , Y } , both of which have finite variances. Consider

U = ( X * + Y * ) V = ( X * - Y * ) , where X * = X - μ X σ X , Y * = Y - μ Y σ Y

Now E [ U ] = E [ V ] = 0 and

E [ U V ] = E ( X * + Y * ) ( X * - Y * ) ] = E [ ( X * ) 2 ] - E [ ( Y * ) 2 ] = 1 - 1 = 0

so the pair is uncorrelated.

Determining an uncorrelated pair

We use the distribution for Examples Example 10 from "Mathematical Expectation: Simple Random Variables" and [link] , for which

E [ X Y ] - E [ X ] E [ Y ] 0

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
