1 EL 630: Homework 6 Note: Midterm Exam (Oct 25, 1999) 1. (a) X is a Gaussian (or Normal) r.v with mean 0 and variance . 2 σ Define . μ + = aX Y Find the characteristic function of Y (29 . ) ( u Y Φ (b) X ) , 0 ( 2 N (as before). Define . 2 X Z = Find the mean, variance and characteristic function of Z . 2. (a) When X is binomially distributed, show that (29 (29 . ) ( 1 2 1 n p q even X P - + = = (b) In a book 200 pages long, it is not unreasonable to expect 100 misprints. Find the probability that a given page will contain (i) two misprints (ii) two or less misprints (iii) two or more misprints. (Hint: Think about approximating a binomial r.v). 3. (a) (i) X is a Poisson r.v with parameter . λ Find (29 3 X E in terms of . (Hint: Use its characteristic function). (ii) Also find the characteristic function of the r.v , a X Y + = where X is as before (29 . ) ( P (b) The r.v Y is the output of a clipped rectifier as given below (also see the figure). X Y = g ( X ) = = . | | , , | | |, | ) ( a X if a a X if x X g Y X is given to be normally distributed with mean
