UCLA EE131A (KY) 2 Covariance (1) The covariance of rv’s X and Y provides a statistical average relationship between (X- X ) and (Y- Y ) and is defined by Cov(X,Y) = E{(X- X ) (Y- Y )} . Cov(X,Y) = E{XY – X Y – Y X + X Y } = XY X Y Y X + X Y = XY X Y . If X = Y, then Cov(X,Y) = E{(X- X ) 2 } = X 2 = Y 2 . Ex. 1. (Ex. 1, p. 8, Lec12-1). We knew XY = 8/18, X = 4/5, and Y = 8/15. Then Cov(X,Y) = XY X Y = (8/18) – (32/75) .
