The expected value of u (x , y ) is, E [u (x , y )] = u (x , y ) f (x , y ) (x ,y )∈S where (x ,y )∈S |u (x , y )| f (x , y ) converges and is ﬁnite. If u (x , y ) = x , E [u (x , y )] = E (x ) 2 If u (x , y ) = (x − E (x ))2 , E [u (x , y )] = σX We are also interested in u (x , y ) = xy for understand the linear association between X and Y .
