ELEC 531: STATISTICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Rice University Fall 2007 Problem Set 1 Due: September 4, 2007 Problem 1.1 Which of the following are probability density functions? Indicate your reasoning. For those that are valid, what is the mean and variance of the random variable? (a) p X ( x ) = e -| x | 2 (b) p X ( x ) = sin 2 πx πx (c) p X ( x ) = ( 1 - | x | | x | ≤ 1 0 otherwise (d) p X ( x ) = ( 1 | x | ≤ 1 0 otherwise (e) p X ( x ) = 1 4 δ ( x + 1) + 1 2 δ ( x ) + 1 4 δ ( x - 1) (f) p X ( x ) = ( e - ( x - 1) x 1 0 otherwise Problem 1.2 A random variable X has cumulative distribution function P X ( x ) = [1 - exp ( - 2 x )] u ( x ) , where u ( x ) is the unit-step function. (a) Calculate the following probabilities: Pr[ X 1] , Pr[ X = 2] , Pr[ X 2] . (b) Find p X ( x ), the probability density function of X . (c) Let Y be a random variable obtained from X as follows: Y = ( 0 X < 2 1 X 2 . Find p Y ( y ), the probability density function for Y . Problem 1.3 A crucial skill in developing simulations for stochastic systems is random variable generation . Most computers (and environments like MATLAB) have software

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
