16.322 Stochastic Estimation and Control, Fall 2004 Prof. Vander Velde Lecture 4 Last time: Left off with characteristic function. 4. Prove φ ( ) = Π φ i ( ) where X = X 1 + X 2 + ... + X ( X i independent) t t x x n Let S X 1 + X + ... X where the X i are independent. = 2 n ... t jtS ⎤ = E e jt X 1 + X 2 + + X n ) φ ( ) = E e ( s jtX 1 E e jtX jtX n = E e 2 ... E e t = φ ( ) X i This is the main reason why use of the characteristic function is convenient. This would also follow from the more devious reasoning of the density function for the sum of n independent random variables being the n th order convolution of the individual density functions – and the knowledge that convolution in the direct variable domain becomes multiplication in the transform domain. 5. MacLaurin series expansion of φ t ( ) Because f(x) is non-negative and f ( ) x dx = 1 (or, even better, f ( ) x dx = 1 ), it −∞ −∞ follows that f ( ) x dx = 1 converges so that f(x) is Fourier transformable. Thus −∞ the characteristic function φ t ( ) exists for all distributions and the inverse relation φ t ( ) is analytic for all ( ) f ( x ) holds for all distributions. This implies that φ t real values of t. Then it can be expanded in a power series, which converges for all finite values of t . 1 2 0 2 n n 0 0 φ ( t ) = φ (0) + φ ( ) ( ) t + 1 φ ( ) ( ) t + ... + 1 φ ( ) ( ) t + ... 2! n ! jtx dx , φ t ) ( ) = f ( x e φ (0) = 1 −∞ Page 1 of 6

### 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.
