Lecture Notes IEOR 165 | George Shanthikumar Tu W Th 2-4:30 pm | 3113 Etcheverry Probability Theory We collect data – define an estimator on data. But we need to figure out the statistics of the data (mean, variance, distribution) We look for the standard distributions useful for statistics. (1) Unit normal (or standard normal) distribution = - , -∞< <∞ fzz 12πexp 12z2 z If = . , . . . . = . α 0 025 then the z0 025 is where area is 0 975 So z0 025 1 96 ( ) according to table Estimator: = - z x μσn - subtract MEAN and divide by SD of x bar unit normal – to use this, we need sigma So we use s2as an estimator of σ2 - = - = - / x μsn x μσnsσ x μσns2 σ2 - = = - n 1s2σ2 k 1nxk xσ2
