Quadratic form / 53 Bivariate Gaussian 54 Properties of Multivariate Normal • Density N completely defined by and . • If joint pdf is normal: – Uncorrelated Independent. – All marginal and conditional pdfs are normal. • Linear transformation of normal vector gives a normal vector (next presentation). 55 56 References Conclusion • Probabilistic description of random variables. • Moments, characteristic function, moment generating function. • Correlation and covariance. • Correlated, independent, orthogonal. • Normal (Gaussian) random variable. 57 • Brown & Hwang, Introduction to Random Signals and Applied Kalman Filtering, Wiley, NY, 2012. • Stark & Woods, Probability and Random Processes, Prentice Hall, Upper Saddle River, NJ, 2002. • R.
