Multiple Continuous Random Variables Joint probability density function f X,Y ( x,y ) describes pair ( X,Y ) . f X,Y ( x,y ) 0 Z x = -∞ Z y = -∞ f X,Y ( x,y ) dydx = 1 P (( X,Y ) A ) = Cumulative joint distribution function F X,Y ( x,y ) = 1

Marginal Densities The p.d.f. of X alone is f X ( x ) = The p.d.f. of Y alone is f Y ( y ) = 2

Conditional Densities The conditional p.d.f. of X given Y = y is f X | Y ( x | y ) = f X,Y ( x,y ) f Y ( y ) The conditional p.d.f. of Y given X = x is f X | Y ( y | x ) = f X,Y ( x,y ) f X ( x ) 3

Expectations Same rules as for discrete ran- dom variables apply but integrals replace sums. For instance, if u ( x,y ) is a function then the ex- pected value of u ( X,Y ) is de- fined as E [ u ( X,Y )] = 4
