Unformatted text preview: Jointly distributed random variables Joint distributions and the central limit theorem Artin Armagan Sta. 113 Chapter 5 of Devore February 5, 2009 Artin Armagan Joint distributions and the central limit theorem Jointly distributed random variables Table of contents 1 Jointly distributed random variables Discrete random variables Continuous random variables Covariance A statistic Sampling Distributions Artin Armagan Joint distributions and the central limit theorem Jointly distributed random variables Discrete random variables Continuous random variables Covariance A statistic Sampling Distributions Joint distributions Definition Let X , Y be two discrete random variables. The joint pdf p ( x , y ) is defined by p ( x , y ) = IP ( X = x and y = Y ) , and for a set A IP [( x , y ) A ] = summationdisplay x , y A p ( x , y ) . Artin Armagan Joint distributions and the central limit theorem Jointly distributed random variables Discrete random variables Continuous random variables Covariance A statistic Sampling Distributions Example An evil Leprechaun is chopping of fingers and toes at night. People wake up with X = 1 , 2 fingers and Y = 2 , 3 , 4 toes.
