EE 278 Handout #19 Statistical Signal Processing Friday, August 14, 2009 Final Exam Solutions 1. (13 points) (a) (9 points) We will first calculate the following expectations that will be used in our calculations later on. E ( X 2 ) = 1; E ( XY 1 ) = E ( X 2 ) + E ( XZ 1 ) = 1; E ( XY 2 ) = 1; E ( Y 2 1 ) = E ( X 2 ) + E ( Z 2 1 ) + 2 E ( XZ 1 ) = 1 + 1 + 0 = 2; E ( Y 2 2 ) = 2; E ( Y 1 Y 2 ) = 1 + ρ Since X , Y 1 and Y 2 are all zero mean, our estimator is in the form of ˆ X = aY 1 + bY 2 . From the orthogonality principle we have, E ( Y 1 ( X - aY 1 - bY 2 )) = 0 1 = 2 a + (1 + ρb ) E ( Y 2 ( X - aY 1 - bY 2 )) = 0 1 = (1 + ρ ) a + 2 b By solving this equation we have, a opt = b opt = 1 3 + ρ The mean square error of this estimator is equal to: E ( X - a opt Y 1 - b opt Y 2 ) 2 = E ( X 2 ) - bracketleftbig E ( XY 1 ) E ( XY 2 ) bracketrightbig bracketleftbigg a opt b opt bracketrightbigg = 1 - 2 ρ + 3 = ρ + 1 ρ + 3 (b) (4 points) For the second part of this problem we can easily calculate the deriva- tive. The derivative of MMSE with respect to ρ is equal to, MMSE ∂ρ = ( ρ + 3) - ( ρ + 1) ( ρ + 3) 2 = 2 ( ρ + 3) 2 > 0 . Therefore the minimum happens at ρ = - 1 (MMSE = 0) and the worst case is when ρ = 1 (MMSE = 1 / 2). Intuitively speaking it is also clear that when the noises have negative correlation it is going to be the best since they cancel themselves in our estimation. 1

2. (15 points) Convergence in distribution. From the definition of s ( x ) and the CDF of X n , F X n ( x ) = 1 - e - λx/n , we can directly compute the CDF of Y n as follows. Let 0 < y < 1. Then F Y n ( y ) = P { Y n y } = P { X n (0 , y ] or X n (1 , 1 + y ] or X n (2 , 2 + y ] or . . . } = summationdisplay i =0 P { X n ( i, i + y ] } = summationdisplay i =0 ( e - λi/n - e - λ/n ( i + y ) ) = parenleftBigg summationdisplay i =0 e - λi/n parenrightBigg ( 1 - e - λy/n ) = 1 - e - λy/n 1 - e - λ/n . Using l’Hˆopital’s rule, we can compute the limit lim n →∞ F Y n ( y ) = lim n →∞ ( - e - λy/n ) ( λy/n 2 ) ( - e - λ/n ) ( λ/n 2 ) = y lim n →∞ e - λy/n e - λ/n = y. Thus, Y n converges in distribution to a uniform random variable, Y n Y Unif[0 , 1] in distribution . 3. (27 points) Process 1: First notice that the process is a Markov process , since given X ( t - 1) the only source of randomness that remains in X ( t ) is due to Z ( t ) which is independent of X (1) , X (2) , . . . X ( t - 2). For checking wide sense stationarity we should check the first and second order moments. We know that E ( Z ( t )) = 0 and E ( Z ( t ) 2 ) = 1 3 . For the first moment of this process we have, E ( X ( t )) = αE ( X ( t - 1))+ E ( Z ( t )) = αE ( X ( t - 1)) E ( X ( t )) = α ( t - 1) E ( X (1)) = 0 . For the second moment suppose that t 2 t 1 and we are interested in calculating E ( X ( t 1 ) X ( t 2 )). From the recursion given in the problem it is easy to derive, X ( t 2 ) = α t 2 - t 1 X ( t 1 ) + t 2 - t 1 summationdisplay i =1 α t 2 - t 1 - i Z ( t 1 + i ) .

### 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.
