Day #44 : Functions of One Random Variable Example Part 1 – 365 DoA

func of RV

Really, this is all we are doing, but let’s make some sense of it.

Well maybe yesterday was confusing, maybe it wasn’t. In any case, today should clarify some things for you if you are confused and should make things more clear if you are not. Today we are going to go over a quick example of what a function involving one random variable looks like. Now you may notice I keep saying one, that’s because you can technically have as many variables as you want, but since this is fairy complex stuff, let’s just stick with the one for now.*

Day #43 : Introduction to Functions of One Random Variable – 365 DoA

Function of one random variable (Borel)

Yep we’re getting a little complicated, but let’s see if we can make sense of this.

Now that we’ve looked at conditional probabilities¬†we can talk about other things we can do with random variables. If you’ve been keeping up with us so far, then this shouldn’t be too crazy of an idea, really all we are going to do today is take a random variable and transform it somehow. Interested? Let’s go!*
