Stochastic Signals and Systems Random Variables Virginia Tech Fall 2008 Many-One Transformations If several values of x can be transformed into one value of y , we say that y = g ( x ) represents a many-one value. Thus with Y = X 2 , both x and - x go into the same value of y . It is merely necessary to add the probabilities of all the “inﬁnitesimal events” ( x < X < x + dx ) that go into the same event ( y < Y < y + dy ) .

Many-One Transformations The event ( y < Y < y + dy ) occurs when any one of the three events involving X occurs. These events will be mutually exclusive if dy is sufﬁciently small. Hence P [ y < Y < y + dy ] = P [ x 1 < X < x 1 + dx 1 ] + P [ x 2 < X < x 2 + dx 2 ] + P [ x 3 < X < x 3 + dx 3 ] and in terms of the pdf of X and Y , f Y ( y ) | dy | = f X ( x 1 ) | dx 1 | + f X ( x 2 ) | dx 2 | + f X ( x 3 ) | dx 3 | . Dividing by | dy | , we ﬁnd the pdf of Y f Y ( y ) = f X ( x 1 ) ± ± ± ± dx 1 dy ± ± ± ± ± ± ± ± x 1 = g - 1 ( y ) + ... + f X ( x k ) ± ± ± ± dx k dy ± ± ± ± ± ± ± ± x k = g - 1 ( y ) Example Let
