Neal has office hours 13pm on Thu. 1 Method of Moments 1.1 Review Last time : For discrete r.v. X , P Y ( y ) = P [ { Y = y } ] = P [ { g ( X ) = y } ] = P bracketleftbig { X ∈ g 1 ( y ) } bracketrightbig We did the Overtime example, which transforms the variable X (the number of rounds of overtime played) to T (the team that won), where we defined Team 1 as the team that went first, and Team 2 as the team that went second. See the mapping in Figure 1. When X was Geometric with parameter p , then T had the pmf, P T ( t ) = 1 2 p , t = 1 1 p 2 p , t = 2 , o.w. Def’n: ManytoOne A function Y = g ( X ) is manytoone if, for some value y , there is more than one value of x such that y = g ( x ), or equivalently, { g 1 ( y ) } has more than one element. Def’n: OnetoOne A function Y = g ( X ) is onetoone if, for every value y , there is exactly one value x such that y = g ( x ). Bottom line : know that the set { g 1 ( y ) } can have either one, or many, elements. ECE 5510 Fall 2008 2 Figure 1: Overtime function T = g ( X ). Team 1 wins if overtime ends in an oddnumbered round, and Team 2 wins if overtime ends in an evennumbered round. Example: OnetoOne Transform Let X be a discrete uniform r.v. on S X = { 1 , 2 , 3 } , and Y = g ( X ) = 2 X . What is P Y ( y )? Answer: We can see that S Y = { 2 , 4 , 6 } Then P Y ( y ) = P [ { Y = y } ] = P [ { 2 X = y } ] = P [ { X = y/ 2 } ] = P X ( y/ 2) = braceleftbigg 1 / 3 , y = 2 , 4 , 6 , o.w....
