Unformatted text preview: 1 National Chiao Tung University Department of Electronics Engineering Stochastic Processes, Midterm I, 2006 Solutions NOTE: • Remember to write down your name. • There are 5 problem sets with 100 points in total. 1. True or False (5+5+5+5=20 points) Please provide an explanation, either a simple proof or a counter example, to your answer. Otherwise, your answer will carry no credits. (a) The eigenvalue of a covariance matrix is always nonnegative. True. For any covariance matrix K , we can rewrite it as K = E [ xx H ] with appropriate x . Then, for the eigenvector e of K associated with eigenvalue λ , we have E [ xx H ] e = λ e . Letmultiplying both sides by e H gives e H E [ xx H ] e = λ e H e = λ  e  2 . Since the lefthand side of the above is nonnegative, the righthand side is also the case, implying λ ≥ . (b) Let X and Y be two arbitrary zero mean random variables. Then, X and Y E [ Y  X ] are uncorrelated. True. To justify this, we need to show E [ X ( Y E [ Y  X ])] = E [ X ] E [ Y E [ Y  X ]] . The correlation is E [ X ( Y E [ Y  X ])] = E [ XY XE [ Y  X ]] = E [ XY E [ XY  X ]] = E [ XY ] E [ E [ XY  X ]] = E [ XY ] E [ XY ] = 0 , which equals to E [ X ] E [ Y E [ Y  X ]] (since X is zero mean). (c) Suppose E [ XY ] = E [ X ] E [ Y ] for two Gaussian random variables X and Y . Then, X and Y are independent. False. X and Y have to be jointly Gaussian. (d) An eigenvalue of the matrix AA H is also an eigenvalue of A H A for any nonzero matrix A . True. See HW1 Prob. 4(a). 2 2.
