X, Y independent cov( X, Y ) = 0 Assume random variables X and Y are discrete . That is, assume that there is a fnite or denumerable sample space which is a set oF i and a set oF quantities x i and y i defned. Defnition X and Y are independent iF prob(( X = x ) and ( Y = y )) = prob( X = x )prob( Y = y ) in which x is some x i and y is some y j . Then iF X and Y are independent, E ( XY ) = E ( X ) E ( Y ) Proof: E ( XY ) = x i y j prob( XY = x i y j ) i,j = x i y j prob(( X = x i ) and ( Y = y j )) i,j = x i y j prob( X = x i )prob( Y = y j ) i,j = x i prob( X = x i ) y j prob( Y = y j ) = E ( X ) E ( Y ) i j Then iF X and Y are independent, cov( X, Y ) = E [( X E ( X ))( Y E ( Y ))] = E [ XY XE ( Y ) Y E ( X ) + E ( X ) E ( Y )] = E [
