If the random variables X and Y are standard (i.e. have mean zero and variance one), then L∗ (X ) = ρX,Y X and the MSE is 1 − ρ2 . This fact highlights the central role of the correlation X,Y coefficient, ρX,Y , in the linear estimation of Y from X. This section covers three types of estimators of Y : unconstrained estimators of the form g (X ), linear estimators of the form L(X ) = aX + b, and constant estimators, of the form δ. Of the three, the unconstrained estimators are the most general, a subset of them consists of the linear estimators, and a subset of the linear estimators is the set of constant estimators. The larger the class of estimators optimized over, the smaller the resulting MSE is. Thus, the following ordering among the three MSEs holds: E [(Y − g ∗ (X ))2 ] MSE for g ∗ (X )=E [Y |X ] 2 ≤ σY (1 − ρ2 ) ≤ X,Y MSE for L∗ (X ) Var(Y ) MSE for δ ∗ =E [Y ]. (4.36) 4.10.
