Probability and Statistics , Quiz One Solution , Spring 2008 , Prof . C.D . Chung 1 . (5% ; 1% each) Let X and Y be independen t and identically distributed Gaussian random variables which have zero mean and unit variance . De- termine whether each o f the following statements is true or false . Correct answer without any explanation or proo f wil l not be given any credit. (a ) If a isa constant with 0 <a< 1 , then aX +(1 a ) Y isa Gaussian random variable with zero mean and unit variance. Sol : From Theorem 3.19, aX and (1 a ) Y are independent Gaussian random variables with zero mean and variance a 2 and (1 a ) 2 , respectively . More- over , from Theorem 6.10, aX + (1 a ) Y isa Gaussian random variable with zero mean and variance a 2 + (1 a ) 2 . This statement is false. (b) E [ X n Y m ]=0 if n + m is an odd integer. Sol : Withou t loss o

Unformatted text preview: n ] E [ Y m ] . Furthermore, y m is an odd funtion and f ( y ) is a even function, so E [ Y m ] = 0 . As a consequence, E [ X n Y m ] = 0 , and this statement is true. (c) E [ X Y ] = 0 . Sol: Since X and Y are independent, E [ X Y ] = E [ X ] = 0 . This statement is true. (d) E [exp( X + Y )] = 1 =e where e is the exponential. Sol: E [exp( X + Y )] = E [exp( X )] E [exp( Y )] = 8 < : Z 1 2 exp( x )exp( x 2 2 ) 9 = ; 2 = 8 < : e Z 1 2 exp( ( x 1) 2 2 ) 9 = ; 2 = e , so this statement is false. (e) The probability density function of the random variable X + Y is an even function. Sol: From Theorem 6.10, the random variable W = X + Y is a Gaussian random variable with zero mean and variance 2 , so the PDF of W is an even function. This statement is true. 1 Solution: . = Similarly,...
