    M4L5 Expectation and Moments of Functions of Random Variable 1. Introduction This lecture is a continuation of previous lecture, elaborating expectations, moments and moment generating functions of the ‘functions of random variable’ discussed earlier. 2. Moments of functions of random variables In general, the th moment of the function of discrete random variable is given by: And the th moment of the function of continuous random variable is given by: 2.1. Moments of functions of random variables about its mean The th moment of the function of discrete random variable about its mean is given by: The th moment of the functions of continuous functions is expressed as: 2.2. Variance of discrete functions The variance of discrete function, is expressed as:
