Example Let ( X 1 ,X 2 ) be continuous with a joint pdf f X 1 ,X 2 ( x 1 ,x 2 ) = ( 1 if 0 < x 1 ,x 2 < 1 0 otherwise. Let Y 1 = X 1 + X 2 , Y 2 = X 1 - X 2 . Find the joint pdf of ( Y 1 ,Y 2 ).

Standard transformations The sum of independent random variables Let X 1 and X 2 be independent continuous ran- dom variables with densities f X 1 and f X 2 ac- cordingly. Let Z = X 1 + X 2 . The density of Z is f Z ( z ) = Z -∞ f X 1 ( z - v ) f X 2 ( v ) dv, the convolution of the densities
