Sarwate, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, All Rights Reserved Slide 2 of 41 Conditional pdf of X Introduction For a continuous random variable X , the conditional pdf f X | A (u | A) describes the probabilistic behavior of X given that the event A has occurred P{u X u+ u | A} = P[{u X u+ u} A]/P(A) f X | A (u | A) u In Lecture 29, we considered the case when A is specified in terms of X itself ECE 313 - Lecture 34 2000 Dilip V. Sarwate, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, All Rights Reserved Slide 3 of 41 X and Y are jointly continuous random variables, and suppose A = { Y } Given that A occurred, ( X , Y ) must be in the orange shaded region shown Conditional pdf of X given {Y } v u P{u X u+ u} = volume in green strip P[{u X u+ u} A] = volume in blue strip f X| A (u | A) u vol. blue strip P(A) f X| A (u | A) = f X , Y (u,v)dv F Y ( ) ECE 313 - Lecture 34 2000 Dilip V.
