For an arbitrary random vector (X,Y ) and an independent random variable Z it is shown that the maximum correlation coefficient between X and Y + λZ as a function of λ is lower semicontinuous everywhere and continuous at zero where it attains its maximum. If, moreover, Z is in the class of self-decomposable random variables, then the maximal correlation(More)
We present a mathematical model, and the corresponding mathematical analysis, that justifies and quantifies the use of principal component analysis of biallelic genetic marker data for a set of individuals to detect the number of subpopulations represented in the data. We indicate that the power of the technique relies more on the number of individuals(More)
