Discrete Random Variables and
their Probability Distributions
Definition 1. A random variable is a real
valued function for which the domain is a
sample space. Random variables are
denoted by capital

The purpose of statistics is to use
information contained in a sample to make
inferences about the population from which
the sample was taken.
Because populations are characterized by

Introduction.
Here we extend the regression model to situations where the underlying
relation is not linear. There are two basic approaches:
