BETA DISTRIBUTION CHANGE OF VARIABLE FORMULA FOR BIVARIATE DENSITIES Minimum and Maximum Suppose U 1 , U 2 are i.i.d. standard uniforms. Let X := min ( U 1 , U 2 ) , Y := max ( U 1 , U 2 ) Their joint density: ( X , Y ) takes values in f X , Y ( x , y ) dxdy = P ( x X x + dx , y Y y + dy ) = , so f X , Y ( x , y ) = , . Marginal densities: 1. f X ( x ) = , 2. f Y ( y ) = , 2 / 12 Xinghua Zheng Lect 18: Beta Distribution; Change of Variables in 2D
BETA DISTRIBUTION CHANGE OF VARIABLE FORMULA FOR BIVARIATE DENSITIES The Beta Distribution Suppose 0 < α, β < . A random variable X with density f X ( x ) = Γ( α + β ) Γ( α )Γ( β ) x α - 1 ( 1 - x ) β - 1 , 0 < x < 1 , is said to have a Beta distribution with parameters α and β , written as X Beta ( α, β ) . Examples: 1. If U has a standard uniform distribution, then U Beta ( , ) . 2. Suppose U 1 , U 2 are i.i.d. standard uniform random variables, and let X := min ( U 1 , U 2 ) , Y := max ( U 1 , U 2 ) . Then X , Y . 3 / 12 Xinghua Zheng Lect 18: Beta Distribution; Change of Variables in 2D

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.
