  1. Statistics: Continuous Methods STAT 452/652 Fall 2008 Lecture 3: Central Limit Effect (slides only contain intro)

  2. Normal distribution

  3. Normal distribution

  4. Normal distribution 68% 95% 99.7%

  5. Central Limit Effect

  6. Summing random variables B A A+B

  7. Summing random variables A, B, C, D A+B A+B+C+D A+B+C

  8. Summing random variables Generally, summation changes the shape of the distribution: number of possible values, spread, mean, etc. There is no simple way to tell what is the distribution of A+B if we know A and B (that is, you HAVE to do some integration and stuff) ... and what about A+B+C+...+Z? We need a miracle to cope with this...
