ST 701 Week Seven Notes MaLyn Lawhorn September 26, 2017 and September 28, 2017 Quick Note From Last Class There are two different ways to calculate E[g(x)] and those are R ▯ E[g(x)] = g(x)f (x)dx X R ▯ Y = g(x); then E[Y ] = yfY(y)dy Moments th n th For special g functions, we deﬁne the nmoment of X to be E[X ], n = 1;2;▯▯▯ and n central moment E[(X ▯ E(X)) ]. Moments give us information about the distribution. Examples: ▯ 1st moment, E[X], is the mean, ▯ ▯ 2nd central moment, E[(X ▯ E[X]) ], is the variance We are usually only interested in low-or
