Example : You are playing a game in which a fair coin is flipped 3 times . On each toss , you win a dollar if the coin lands heads , and lose a dollar if the coin lands tails Analyze this game Solution : We start by building a probability space ( d. F , P ) to model the game We take D= { AHH , HHT , HTH , TH H , HTT , THT , TTH , TTT } , which represents all possible outcomes , F - - { Eel } , which represents all events , and IP ( E ) = FIT because the coin is fair Now let X :D IR be the random variable defined by X ( w ) = winnings if w occurs . Then XCHHH ) =3 X( HTT ) = - l X ( HHT ) - - I X( THT ) - - - I XCHTH ) - - I XLTTH ) - - - I XITHH ) - - I XITTT ) =-3 , so Supp ( X ) - E - 3 , - I , 1,33 Subscribe to view the full document.

The probability mass function of X is thus I , if k =-3 Zz , if k = - I k " " " ÷÷÷÷ . . . . . The CDF of X is TIKI =P ( X ' x ) , so F- Cx ) - 2. p . ( x ) .

Last Time : Random Vectors Definition : Given a probability space ( D , I , P ) and a positive integer k , a K - dimensional random vector is a function X. r - spi . Definition : The support of X is the set of its outputs : Supp ( X ) = Exe Rk : Xcws - - x for some wed ) . X is said to be discrete if Supp ( X ) is finite or countably infinite , and continuous if Supp ( X ) is uncountable - Let X - ( X . Subscribe to view the full document. • Winter '08

### What students are saying

• 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.
