C OMER ECE 600 Homework 9 1. Explain why the central limit theorem does not hold if the random variables X k have a Cauchy density. Find the pdf of the random variable = = n k k 1 X Y if the X k are iid Cauchy random variables with parameters = 0 and ± > 0. 2. The strong law of large numbers states that, with probability 1, the successive arithmetic averages of a sequence of iid random variables converge to their common mean . What do the successive geometric averages converge to? That is, find n n k k n 1 1 X lim ± ± ² ³ ´ ´ µ = 3. The amount of time that a certain type of component functions before failing is a random variable with pdf 1 0 2 ) f( < < = x x x Once the component fails it is immediately replaced by another one of the same type. If we let X i denote the lifetime of the i th component to be put in use, then = = n i i n 1 X S represents the time of the n th failure. The long-term rate at which failures occur, denoted

The continuous parameter random process X( t ) = e A t is a family of exponentials depending on the random variable A. Express the mean &amp; ( t ), the autocorrelation function R( t 1 , t 2 ), and the first-order pdf f( x ; t ) of X( t ) in terms of the pdf f A ( a ) of A. 5. The random variable C is uniform in the interval (0, T ), where T is not random. Find the autocorrelation function of X t if X t = u( t C). 6. A random process has sample functions of the form ) sin( A ) X( t t = where A is a random variable uniform on [-1,1], and &amp; is fixed. a. Find E[X( t )]. b. Find the pdf of ). 2 X(...
