1. (13 points) Suppose that we have access to two noisy observations of a zero mean unit variance random variable X . Y 1 = X + Z 1 Y 2 = X + Z 2 where Z 1 and Z 2 are independent from X and have the following characteristics: E ( Z 1 ) = E ( Z 2 ) = 0; E ( Z 2 1 ) = E ( Z 2 2 ) = 1; E ( Z 1 Z 2 ) = ρ. Our goal is to estimate X linearly from Y 1 and Y 2 . (a) (9 points) Find the MMSE-optimal linear estimator of X given Y 1 and Y 2 and its MSE. Your answer will depend on ρ . (b) (4 points) For which value of ρ does the estimator perform the best? For which value of ρ does it perform the worst? 2. (15 points) For n 1, let X n be an exponentially distributed random variable, X n Exp( λ/n ), with λ > 0. Define the sawtooth function s ( x ) = x − ⌊ x , where

### 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.
