Bivariate Gaussian random variables (a) Show that the probability density function provided in class for two jointly Gaussian random variables [ X,Y ] T is equivalent to the following expression: p Z ( z ) = 1 (2 ) n 2 p | | exp- 1 2 ( z- m ) T - 1 ( z- m ) where Z = [ X,Y ] T m = [ m X ,m Y ] T = 2 X X Y X Y 2 Y and n = 2 Note that the notation | | denotes taking the determinant. (b) The Matlab command x = randn(2,2000) will generate 2000 samples of a bivariate Gaus- sian random variable X = [ X 1 ,X 2 ] T with mean vector and covariance matrix m = = 1 0 0 1 We will soon learn that we can convert these two independent, standard Gaussian random variables into two Gaussians with arbitrary mean and covariance matrix through the following linear transformation (note that...
