Unformatted text preview: EML 6934 Fall 2009 Optimal Estimation University of Florida Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering HW 4 Issued: September 18, 2009, Due: September 25, 2009 (in class) Note: Your work for the questions with [0 pt] are not to be turned in. Problem 1. [5 pt] Show that var ( aX ) = a 2 var ( X ) ( a is a deterministic parameter). Problem 2. [10 + 10 = 20 pt] Prove the CBS (Cauchy-Bunyakovskii-Schwarz) Inequality for random variables. That is, show that for two random variables X and Y , Covar ( X,Y ) radicalbig V ar ( X ) V ar ( Y ) and similarly | E[ XY ] | 2 E[ X 2 ]E[ Y 2 ] Problem 3. [10 + 10 = 20 pt] Show the following triangle inequality for random variables, that for two random variables X and Y , radicalbig E[( X + Y ) 2 ] radicalbig E[ X 2 ] + radicalbig E[ Y 2 ] and radicalbig V ar ( X + Y ) radicalbig V ar ( X ) + radicalbig V ar ( Y ) Problem 4 (Sample variance as an estimate of the variance) . [5+10+0 = 15 pt] Let X 1 ,... ,X n be n independent random variables that have the same mean = E[ X i ] and variance 2 = E[( X- ) 2 ], and < , 2 < . Now consider the sample mean and the sample variance 2 : = X 1 + X 2 + ...X N N , 2 = ( X 1- ) 2 + ( X 2- ) 2 + + ( X N- ) 2...
