How to find joint distribution of two normally distributed random variables?

Elisabeth Esparza 2022-07-18 Answered
Let Y 1 and Y 2 be independent random variables with Y 1 N ( 1 , 3 ) and Y 2 N ( 2 , 5 ) . If W 1 = Y 1 + 2 Y 2 and W 2 = 4 Y 1 Y 2 , what is the joint distribution of W 1 and W 2 ?

Step 1
First note that ( Y 1 , Y 2 ) is bivariate normal because Y 1 , Y 2 are independent.
Next observe that
( W 1 W 2 ) = A ( Y 1 Y 2 )
A = ( 1 2 4 1 ) , ,
and use the fact that affine transforms of normal random vectors are normal, i.e.
X N ( μ , Σ ) A X + b N ( A μ + b , A Σ A ) . .

Let's say we have two random variables Y and X used to form regression model
Y = α + β X + μ
It also holds that E ( μ ) = 0, Var ( μ ) = σ μ 2 , Var ( X ) = σ X 2 , Var ( Y ) = σ Y 2 , Corr ( X , Y ) = r and Corr ( X , μ ) = r X μ . Find β. I tried to solve this as follows:
For simple linear regression β = Cov ( X , Y ) Var ( X ) and Corr ( X , Y ) = Cov ( X , Y ) σ X σ Y = r so that:
β = Corr ( X , Y ) σ X σ Y σ X 2 = r σ Y σ X
Is this as simple as this?

Now when we take Z 1 = X + Y 1 and Z 2 = X + Y 2 , what can we say about the correlation coefficient between Z 1 and Z 2 ?
For this case, is it possible to find the correlation coefficient as function of σ x and σ y ?

Short version, I need to find a regression to this: a t ( mod Δ ), a and Δ are the unknowns constants.
Any idea where I should start looking?
Some context, because I may be wording it in a confusing way: I am trying to find the tempo of time-stamped events t i for some real time musical analysis. They have a typical interval of Δ, but there isn't an event at every "tick", so no linear regression, and there may be more than one event for a given "tick". In other words, t n + 1 t n may be 0 or any m Δ.

Suppose you have two sequences of complex numbers a i and b i indexed over the integer numbers such that they are convergent in l 2 norm and a has norm greater than b in the sense
> i | a i | 2 i | b i | 2 .
Suppose moreover they are uncorrelated over any time delay, meaning
i a i b i n ¯ = 0 n Z .
Is it true that the polinomial a ( z ) = i a i z i is greater in absolute value than b ( z ) = i b i z i for any unit norm complex number z?

Consider a signal that is a sum of sinusoids, e.g.
x ( t ) = A s i n ( a t ) + B c o s ( b t )
Is there an easy and general way to get an analytical solution for the autocorrelation of x(t)?
Is the best way to simply plug x(t) into the autocorrelation formula?

A random sample of size n from a bivariate distribution is denoted by ( x r , y r ) , r = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . , n. Show that if the regression line of y on x passes through the origin of its scatter diagram then
y ¯ r = 1 n x r 2 = x ¯ r = 1 n x r y r
where ( x ¯ , y ¯ ) is the mean point of the sample.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
