This chapter presents a review of some basic concepts of probability theory, including probability spaces, random variables, random matrices, distributions, densities and expectations. Some classical… Expand

Time-Dependent Random Variables: Classical Stochastic Processes

- Mathematics
- 2012

If one considers a random variable which depends on time, one is led to the concept of a stochastic process. After the definition of a general stochastic process in Sect. 5.1, we introduce the class… Expand

An Estimate of the Probability Density Function of the Sum of a Random Number N of Independent Random Variables

- Mathematics, Computer Science
- J. Comput. Eng.
- 2015

A new estimate of the probability density function (PDF) of the sum of a random number of independent and identically distributed (IID) random variables is shown. The sum PDF is represented as a sum… Expand

Probability and Stochastic Processes

- Mathematics
- 2015

This chapter is an introduction to probability and statistics, providing basic definitions and properties related to probability theory and stochastic processes to help readers refresh their memory… Expand

Random Variables: Fundamentals of Probability Theory and Statistics

- Mathematics
- 2012

A fundamental concept for any statistical treatment is that of the random variable. Thus this concept and various other closely related ideas are presented at the beginning of this book. Section 2.1… Expand

Probability, Random Variables, and Random Processes

- Mathematics
- 2016

The principal objective of this chapter is to introduce the basic concepts of probability, random variables, and random processes, with the sole focus of their applications in digital communications.… Expand

Random Number and Variate Generation

- Mathematics
- 2013

This chapter discusses various methods for the generation of random samples distributed according to given probability distributions, in both the univariate and multivariate cases. These methods can… Expand

On generating sets of binary random variables with specified first- and second- moments

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- Proceedings of the 2010 American Control Conference
- 2010

This work proposes a low-complexity algorithm for generating sets of binary random variables with specified means and pairwise correlations, and shows that the parameters of this data-generation algorithm can be easily designed to achieve the desired statistics, under broad conditions. Expand

On the Dimensionality of the Stochastic Space in the Stochastic Finite Element Method

- Mathematics
- 2007

In recent works concerning the solution of various kinds of random equations or the stochastic simulation of random functions often so called (generalized) polynomial chaos expansions are used.… Expand

Random Variables : An Overview

- 2011

This paper introduces the concept of a random variable, which is nothing more than a variable whose numeric value is determined by the outcome of an experiment. To describe the probabilities that are… Expand
