Section 3.6

Recall that

y–1/2e–y dy =

Perform the following change of variables in the integral:

w = 2yy =dy =

Let –< a < and 0 < b < , and perform the following change of variables in the integral:

x = a + bww =dw =

< x < < w <

We shall come back to this derivation later.

Right now skip to the following:

A random variable having this p.d.f. is said to have a normal distribution with mean and variance 2, that is, a N(,2) distribution.

A random variable Z having a N(0,1) distribution, called a standard normal distribution, has p.d.f.

– z2 / 2

f(z) =——— for –< z <

2

We let (z) = P(Z z), the distribution function of Z. Since f(z) is a symmetric function, it is easy to see that (– z) = 1 – (z). Tables Va and Vb in Appendix B of the text display a graph of f(z) and values of (z) and (– z).

Important Theorems in the Text:

If X is N(,2), then Z = (X– ) / is N(0,1). Theorem 3.6-1

If X is N(,2), then V = [(X – ) / ]2 is 2(1). Theorem 3.6-2

We shall discuss these theorems later. Right now go to Class Exercise #1:
