### ELEC 303 – Random Signals

Lecture 11 – Derived distributions, covariance, correlation and convolution

Derived distributions

Sum of independent random variables

Covariance and correlations

• Consider the function Y=g(X) of a continuous RV X

• Given PDF of X, we want to compute the PDF of Y

• The method

• Calculate CDF FY(y) by the formula

• Differentiate to find PDF of Y

Let X be uniform on [0,1]

Y=sqrt(X)

FY(y) = P(Yy) = P(Xy2) = y2

fY(y) = dF(y)/dy = d(y2)/dy = 2y 0 y1

John is driving a distance of 180 miles with a constant speed, whose value is ~U[30,60] miles/hr

Find the PDF of the trip duration?

Plot the PDF and CDFs

Y=g(X)=X2, where X is a RV with known PDF

Find the CDF and PDF of Y?

• If Y=aX+b, for a and b scalars and a0

• Example 1: Linear transform of an exponential RV (X): Y=aX+b

• fX(x) = e-x, for x0, and otherwise fX(x)=0

• Example 2: Linear transform of normal RV

X is a continuous RV and its range in contained in an interval I

Assume that g is a strictly monotonic function in the interval I

Thus, g can be inverted: Y=g(X) iff X=h(Y)

Assume that h is differentiable

The PDF of Y in the region where fY(y)>0 is:

Two archers shoot at a target

The distance of each shot is ~U[0,1], independent of the other shots

What is the PDF for the distance of the losing shot from the center?

Let X and Y be independent RVs that are uniformly distributed on the interval [0,1]

Find the PDF of the RV Z?

• Covariance of two RVs is defined as follows

• An alternate formula:

Cov(X,Y) = E[XY] – E[X]E[Y]

• Properties

• Cov(X,X) = Var(X)

• Cov(X,aY+b) = a Cov(X,Y)

• Cov(X,Y+Z) = Cov(X,Y) + Cov (Y,Z)

If X and Y are independent  E[XY]=E[X]E[Y]

So, the cov(X,Y)=0

The converse is not generally true!!

The correlation coefficient of two RVs is defined as

The range of values is between [-1,1]

Two RVs:

Multiple RVs
