[Expand Summary]
The (simple) random sample, is basic to much of classical statistics. Once formulated, we may apply probability theory to exhibit several basic ideas of statistical analysis. A population may be most any collection of individuals or entities. Associated with each member is a quantity or a feature that can be assigned a number. The population distribution is the distribution of that quantity among the members of the population. To obtain information about the population distribution, we select “at random” a subset of the population and observe how the quantity varies over the sample. Hopefully, the distribution in the sample will give a useful approximation to the population distribution. We obtain values of such quantities as the mean and variance in the sample (which are random quantities) and use these as estimators for corresponding population parameters (which are fixed). Probability analysis provides estimates of the variation of the sample parameters about the corresponding population parameters.

[Expand Summary]
The central limit theorem (CLT) asserts that the sum of a large class of independent random variables, each with reasonable distributions,is approximately normally distributed. Various versions of this theorem have been studied intensively. On the other hand, certain common forms serve as the basis of an extraordinary amount of applied work. In the statistics of large samples, the sample average is approximately normal—whether or not the population distribution is normal. In much of the theory of errors of measurement, the observed error is the sum of a large number of independent random quantities which contribute additively to the result. Similarly, in the theory of noise, the noise signal is the sum of a large number of random components, independently produced. In such situations, the assumption of a normal population distribution is frequently quite appropriate

[Expand Summary]
A fundamental problem is to determine the probability of a logical (Boolean) combination of a finite class of events, when the probabilities of certain other combinations are known. If we partition an event F into component events whose probabilities can be determined, then the additivity property implies the probability of F is the sum of these component probabilities. Frequently, the event F is a Boolean combination of members of a finite class  say {A, B, C} or {A, B, C,D}. For each such finite class, there is a fundamental partition determined by the class. The members of this partition are called minterms. Any Boolean combination of members of the class can be expressed as the disjoint union of a unique subclass of the minterms. If the probability of every minterm in this subclass can be determined, then by additivity the probability of the Boolean combination is determined. An important geometric aid to analysis is the minterm map, which has spaces for minterms in an orderly arrangement.

Summary:
Motivated by the practical problem of nonstationary sources, adaptation of the uniform quantizer's stepsize is discussed. In particular, adaptive quantization based on forward estimation (AQF) and backward estimation (AQB) are discussed, in both blockbased and recursive forms.

We first summarize certain essentials in the analysis of homogeneous Markov chains with costs and rewards associated with states, or with transitions between states. Then we consider three cases: a. Gain associated with a state; b. Onestep transition gains; and c. Gains associated with a demand under certain reasonable conditions. Matlab implementations of the results of analysis provide machine solutions to a variety of problems.
