A random variable X on a probability space (, A, P) is a function

X :R

that assigns a real number X() to each sample point , such that for every real number x, the set {|X() x} is an event, i.e., a member of A.

The (cumulative) distribution functionFX of a random variable X is defined to be the function

FX(x) = P(Xx), − < x < .

A random variable X is called a continuous random variable if

Probability Density Functions of Continuous Random Variables

A probability density function (pdf) fX(x) of a continuous random variable X is a nonnegative function f such that

A probability density function (pdf) fX(x) of a continuous random variable X is a nonnegative function f such that

The Exponential Distributions

- The following r.v.’s are often modelled as exponential:
- Interarrival time between two successive job arrivals.
- Service time at a server in a queuing network.
- Life time of a component.

A r.v. X is said to possess an exponential distribution and to be exponentially distributed, denoted by

X~Exp(), if it possesses the density

The Reliability

and

Failure Rate

Let r.v. X be the lifetime or time to failure of a component. The probability that the component survives until some time t is called the reliabilityR(t) of the component, i.e.,

R(t) = P(X > t) = 1 F(t)

Remarks:

- F(t) is, hence, called unreliability.
- R’(t)= F’(t) = f(t)is called the failure density function.

In a batch processing environment, the number of jobs arriving for service is 9 per hour. If the arrival process satisfies the requirement of a Poisson experiment. Find the probability that the elapse time between a given arrival and the fifth subsequent arrival is less than 10 minutes.
