ECE 313 - Lecture 37 © 2000 Dilip V. Sarwate, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, All Rights Reserved Slide 2 of 36 W = g( X , Y ) and Z = h( X , Y ) are functions of random variables X and Y We have learned how to compute the pmf or pdf or CDF of W and Z individually What is the joint distribution of W and Z ? The joint CDF F W , Z ( α , β ) cannot be obtained from knowledge of the marginal CDFs F W ( α ) and F Z ( β ) … unless, of course, W and Z are known to be independent random variables Two functions of two RVs

Sarwate, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, All Rights Reserved Slide 3 of 36 If X and Y are discrete random variables, then so are W = g( X , Y ) and Z = h( X , Y ) Determine the sets of values taken on by W and Z { α k } = {g(u i , v j ) : 1 ≤ i ≤ m, 1 ≤ j ≤ n} { β l } = {h(u i , v j ) : 1 ≤ i ≤ m, 1 ≤ j ≤ n} p W , Z ( α k , β l ) = P{ W = α k , Z = β l } = p X , Y (u i ,v j ) 2200 i 2200 j Two functions of two discrete RVs
