University of Illinois Fall 2010 ECE 313: Problem Set 9: Solutions Functions of a random variable, failure rate functions 1. [Log random variables] (a) Z takes values in the set [ e a , e b ]; for e a c e b : F Z ( c ) = P { e U c } = P { U ln c } = ln c - a b - a . Differentiating yields f Z ( c ) = 1 c ( b - a ) e a c e b 0 else . (b) By LOTUS, E [ Z ] = R b a e u b - a du = e b - e a b - a . (c) Y is positive valued; for c 0 , F Y ( c ) = P { e X c } = P { X ln c } = F X (ln( c )) . Differentiating and using the chain rule yields f Y ( c ) = ( f X (ln c ) c = 1 c 2 π exp - (ln( c )) 2 2 c 0 0 else . (d) By LOTUS, E [ Y ] = Z -∞ e u 1 2 π exp - u 2 2 du = Z -∞ 1 2 π exp - u 2 - 2 u 2 du = exp 1 2 Z -∞ 1 2 π exp - ( u - 1) 2 2 du = exp 1 2 = e = 1 . 64872 . 2. [Generation of random variables with specified probability density function] Since U and X are both distributed over the interval [0 , 1] , the function g should map the interval [0 , 1] onto interval [0 , 1] . The desired CDF of g ( U ) is given by F X ( c ) = R c 0 2 vdv = c 2 for 0 c 1 , and we let g ( u ) = F - 1 ( u ) . If g ( u ) = c then F X ( c ) = u or c 2 = u or c = u.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
