1.010 - Brief Notes #7 Conditional Second-Moment Analysis Important result for jointly normally distributed variables X 1 and X 2 If X 1 and X 2 are jointly normally distributed with mean values m 1 and m 2 , variances σ 1 2 and σ 2 2 , and correlation coefficient ρ , then (X 1 | X 2 = x 2 ) is also normally distributed with mean and variance: σ 1 m 1|2 (x 2 ) = m 1 + ρ (x 2 m 2 ) σ 2 (1) σ 1 2 |2 (x 2 ) = σ 2 (1 −ρ 2 ) 1 Notice that the conditional variance does not depend on x 2 . The results in Eq. 1 hold strictly when X 1 and X 2 are jointly normal, but may be used in approximation for other distributions or when one knows only the first two X 1 moments of the vector X = .

Unformatted text preview: Let X = X 1 , where X 1 and X 2 are sub-vectors of X. Suppose X has multivariate X 2 normal distribution with mean value vector and covariance matrix: m = m 1 , and = 11 12 ( 12 = 21 T ). m 2 21 22 Then, given X 2 = x 2 , the conditional vector (X 1 | X 2 = x 2 ) has jointly normal distributions with parameters: m 1|2 (x 2 ) = m 1 + 12 22 1 (x 2 m 2 ) (2) 1 T 1|2 (x 2 ) = 11 12 22 12 Notice again that 1|2 does not depend on x 2 . As for the scalar case, Eq. 2 may be used in approximation when X does not have multivariate normal distribution or when the distribution of X is not known, except for the mean vector m and covariance matrix ....
