[Expand Summary]
Often, each outcome of an experiment is characterized by a number. If the outcome is observed as a physical quantity, the size of that quantity (in prescribed units) is the entity actually observed. In many nonnumerical cases, it is convenient to assign a number to each outcome. For example, in a coin flipping experiment, a “head” may be represented by a 1 and a “tail” by a 0. In a Bernoulli trial, a success may be represented by a 1 and a failure by a 0. In a sequence of trials, we may be interested in the number of successes in a sequence of n component trials. One could assign a distinct number to each card in a deck of playing cards. Observations of the result of selecting a card could be recorded in terms of individual numbers. In each case, the associated number becomes a property of the outcome. The fundamental idea of a real random variable is the assignment of a real number to each elementary outcome ω in the basic space Ω. Such an assignment amounts to determining a function X, whose domain is Ω and whose range is a subset of the real line R. Each ω is mapped into exactly one value t, although several ω may have the same image point. Except in special cases, we cannot write a formula for a random variable X. However, random variables share some important general properties of functions which play an essential role in determining their usefulness. Associated with a function X as a mapping are the inverse mapping and the inverse images it produces. By the inverse image of a set of real numbers M under the mapping X, we mean the set of all those ω∈Ω which are mapped into M by X. If X does not take a value in M, the inverse image is the empty set (impossible event). If M includes the range of X, (the set of all possible values of X), the inverse image is the entire basic space Ω. The class of inverse images of the Borel sets on the real line play an essential role in probability analysis.

[Expand Summary]
Often we have more than one random variable. Each can be considered separately, but usually they have some probabilistic ties which must be taken into account when they are considered jointly. We treat the joint case by considering the individual random variables as coordinates of a random vector. We extend the techniques for a single random variable to the multidimensional case. To simplify exposition and to keep calculations manageable, we consider a pair of random variables as coordinates of a twodimensional random vector. The concepts and results extend directly to any finite number of random variables considered jointly. If the joint distribution for a random vector is known, then the distribution for each of the component random variables may be determined. These are known as marginal distributions. In general, the converse is not true. However, if the component random variables form an independent pair, the treatment in that case shows that the marginals determine the joint distribution.

The systematic formulation in the previous module Minterms shows that each Boolean combination, as a union of minterms, can be designated by a vector of zeroone coefficients. A coefficient one in the ith position (numbering from zero) indicates the inclusion of minterm Mi in the union. We formulate this pattern carefully below and show how MATLAB logical operations may be utilized in problem setup and solution.
