These ideas are unified in the concept of a random variable which is a numerical summary of random outcomes. Random variables can be discrete or continuous. A basic function to draw random samples from a specified set of elements is the function sample , see?

As mentioned at the beginning of Chap. In this chapter, we study the second general type of random variable that arises in many applied problems. Sections 3.

In probability and statistics, a randomvariable is a variable whose value is subject to variations due to chance i. As opposed to other mathematical variables, a random variable conceptually does not have a single, fixed value even if unknown ; rather, it can take on a set of possible different values, each with an associated probability. Random variables can be classified as either discrete that is, taking any of a specified list of exact values or as continuous taking any numerical value in an interval or collection of intervals. The mathematical function describing the possible values of a random variable and their associated probabilities is known as a probability distribution. Discrete random variables can take on either a finite or at most a countably infinite set of discrete values for example, the integers. Their probability distribution is given by a probability mass function which directly maps each value of the random variable to a probability. Discrete Probability Disrtibution : This shows the probability mass function of a discrete probability distribution.

Instead, we can usually define the probability density function PDF. The PDF is the density of probability rather than the probability mass. The concept is very similar to mass density in physics: its unit is probability per unit length. Nevertheless, as we will discuss later on, this is not important. Figure 4. The uniform distribution is the simplest continuous random variable you can imagine. For other types of continuous random variables the PDF is non-uniform.

Probability density functions

In probability theory , a probability density function PDF , or density of a continuous random variable , is a function whose value at any given sample or point in the sample space the set of possible values taken by the random variable can be interpreted as providing a relative likelihood that the value of the random variable would equal that sample. In a more precise sense, the PDF is used to specify the probability of the random variable falling within a particular range of values , as opposed to taking on any one value. This probability is given by the integral of this variable's PDF over that range—that is, it is given by the area under the density function but above the horizontal axis and between the lowest and greatest values of the range. The probability density function is nonnegative everywhere, and its integral over the entire space is equal to 1. The terms " probability distribution function " [3] and " probability function " [4] have also sometimes been used to denote the probability density function. However, this use is not standard among probabilists and statisticians.

Еще только начинало светать, но движение уже было довольно оживленным: молодые жители Севильи возвращались после ночных пляжных развлечений. Резко просигналив, пронесся мимо мини-автобус, до отказа забитый подростками. Мотоцикл Беккера показался рядом с ним детской игрушкой, выехавшей на автостраду. Метрах в пятистах сзади в снопе искр на шоссе выкатило такси. Набирая скорость, оно столкнуло в сторону Пежо-504, отбросив его на газон разделительной полосы.

А потом этот парень умер. - А вы пробовали сделать ему искусственное дыхание? - предположил Беккер. - Нет. Мы к нему не прикасались. Мой друг испугался. Он хоть и крупный, но слабак.

Через каждые несколько шагов Стратмор останавливался, держа пистолет наготове, и прислушивался. Единственным звуком, достигавшим его ушей, был едва уловимый гул, шедший снизу. Сьюзан хотелось потянуть шефа назад, в безопасность его кабинета. В кромешной тьме вокруг ей виделись чьи-то лица. На полпути к ТРАНСТЕКСТУ тишина шифровалки нарушилась.

 - Парень снова сплюнул.  - Поэтому все его последователи, достойные этого названия, соорудили себе точно такие. Беккер долго молчал. Медленно, словно после укола транквилизатора, он поднял голову и начал внимательно рассматривать пассажиров.

    Recall that continuous random variables have uncountably many possible values think of intervals of real numbers.
