## Correlation boundLet x and y be two random variables such that:Corr(x,y) = b, where Corr(x,y) represents correlation between x and y, b is a scalar number in range of [-1, 1]. Let y' be an estimation of y. An example could be y'=y+(rand(0,1)-0.5)*.1, rand(0,1) gives random number between 0, 1. I am adding some noise to the data.My questions are:Is there a way where I can bound the correlation between x, y' i.e. Corr(x,y')?I mentioned y' in light of random perturbation, I would like to know what if I don't have that information, where I only know that y' is a estimation of y. Are there any literature that cover it?

## From numerical simulation and regression analysis I discovered that the root-mean-square amplitude of white noise with bandwidth $\mathrm{\Delta }\phantom{\rule{negativethinmathspace}{0ex}}f$ is proportional to $\sqrt{\phantom{\rule{negativethinmathspace}{0ex}}\mathrm{\Delta }\phantom{\rule{negativethinmathspace}{0ex}}f}$. How can this be derived mathematically ?
