More About Random Variables

  • Hugh Gordon
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


The last chapter covered the basic facts about random variables. In this chapter we discuss a number of different topics related only in that all involve random variables. The first section covers some very important theoretical matters that are necessary for understanding the basic ideas of probability theory. The second section discusses the computation of expected values in certain circumstances; this material is used extensively in Chapters Eight and Nine. The optional third section is concerned with finding variances. The three sections may be read in any order.
