Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Problems On Random Vectors and Joint Distributions

Module by: Paul E Pfeiffer. E-mail the author

Exercise 1

Two cards are selected at random, without replacement, from a standard deck. Let X be the number of aces and Y be the number of spades. Under the usual assumptions, determine the joint distribution and the marginals.

Solution

Let X be the number of aces and Y be the number of spades. Define the events ASiASi, Ai, Si, and Ni, i=1,2i=1,2, of drawing ace of spades, other ace, spade (other than the ace), and neither on the i selection. Let P(i,k)=P(X=i,Y=k)P(i,k)=P(X=i,Y=k).

P(0,0)=P(N1N2)=36523551=12602652P(0,0)=P(N1N2)=36523551=12602652

P(0,1)=P(N1S2S1N2)=36521251+12523651=8642652P(0,1)=P(N1S2S1N2)=36521251+12523651=8642652

P(0,2)=P(S1S2)=12521151=1322652P(0,2)=P(S1S2)=12521151=1322652

P(1,1)=P(A1S2S1A2AS1N2N1AS2)= 3 52 12 51 + 12 52 3 51 + 1 52 36 51 + 36 52 1 51 = 144 2652 P(1,1)=P(A1S2S1A2AS1N2N1AS2)= 3 52 12 51 + 12 52 3 51 + 1 52 36 51 + 36 52 1 51 = 144 2652

P(1,2)=P(AS1S2S1AS2)=1521251+1252151=242652P(1,2)=P(AS1S2S1AS2)=1521251+1252151=242652

P(2,0)=P(A1A2)=352251=62652P(2,0)=P(A1A2)=352251=62652

P(2,1)=P(AS1A2A1AS2)=152351+352151=62652P(2,1)=P(AS1A2A1AS2)=152351+352151=62652

Exercise 2

Two positions for campus jobs are open. Two sophomores, three juniors, and three seniors apply. It is decided to select two at random (each possible pair equally likely). Let X be the number of sophomores and Y be the number of juniors who are selected. Determine the joint distribution for the pair {X,Y}{X,Y} and from this determine the marginals for each.

Solution

Let Ai,Bi,CiAi,Bi,Ci be the events of selecting a sophomore, junior, or senior, respectively, on the ith trial. Let X be the number of sophomores and Y be the number of juniors selected.

Set P(i,k)=P(X=i,Y=k)P(i,k)=P(X=i,Y=k)

Exercise 3

A die is rolled. Let X be the number that turns up. A coin is flipped X times. Let Y be the number of heads that turn up. Determine the joint distribution for the pair {X,Y}{X,Y}. Assume P(X=k)=1/6P(X=k)=1/6 for 1k61k6 and for each k, P(Y=j|X=k)P(Y=j|X=k) has the binomial (k,1/2)(k,1/2) distribution. Arrange the joint matrix as on the plane, with values of Y increasing upward. Determine the marginal distribution for Y. (For a MATLAB based way to determine the joint distribution see Example 7 from "Conditional Expectation, Regression")

Solution

P(X=i,Y=k)=P(X=i)P(Y=k|X=i)=(1/6)P(Y=k|X=i)P(X=i,Y=k)=P(X=i)P(Y=k|X=i)=(1/6)P(Y=k|X=i).

Definition of a lens

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
