09 Normal Trans

  1. 1. Stat310 Transformations Hadley Wickham Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  2. 2. Explorations in Statistics Research http://www.stat.berkeley.edu/~summer/ 7 day workshop in Boulder, Colorado Travel + room & board covered Large datasets, real research problems, and data visualisation. Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  3. 3. 1. Test info 2. Normal distribution (theory) 3. Transformations Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  4. 4. Test Feb 18. 80 minute in class test. 4 questions. One double sided sheet of notes. Covers everything up to Feb 16: probability and random variables/distributions. See website for exactly what you should know. Approximately half applied (working with real problems) and half theoretical (working with mathematical symbols). Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  5. 5. Expectations Points will be awarded for fully converting a word problem into a mathematical problem. You should be able to differentiate & integrate polynomials and exponentials and apply the chain rule. I will supply random mathematical facts and tables of probabilities (if needed). Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  6. 6. Note sheet Much of the usefulness of a note sheet is the process of making it. You want to condense everything we have covered. Pull out ongoing themes. Make tables. Use colour! Not useful: a photocopy of someone else’s notes, a verbatim copy of the textbook Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  7. 7. The normal distribution Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  8. 8. 0.4 0.4 N(-2, 1) N(5, 1) 0.3 0.3 0.2 0.2 f(x) f(x) 0.1 0.1 0.0 0.0 −10 −5 0 5 10 0.4 −10 −5 0 5 10 0.3 N(0, 1) 0.2 f(x) 0.1 0.0 0.4 −10 −5 0 5 10 0.4 N(0, 4) N(0, 16) 0.3 0.3 0.2 0.2 f(x) f(x) 0.1 0.1 0.0 0.0 −10 −5 0 5 10 −10 −5 0 5 10 Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  9. 9. 1 (x−µ) − 2σ2 2 f (x) = √ e 2π Is this a valid pdf? Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  10. 10. Wolfram alpha integrate 1/(sigma sqrt(2 pi)) e ^ (-(x- mu) ^2 / (2(sigma^2))) from -infinity to infinity Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  11. 11. Not good enough :( Let’s do it by hand... Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  12. 12. 1 2 2 M (t) = e µt+ 2 σ t A few tricks + lots of algebra Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  13. 13. Your turn σ If X ~ Normal(μ,2),use the mgf to confirm that the mean and variance are what you expect. Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  14. 14. Cheating... d/dt e^(mu*t + 1/2 sigma^2 t^2) at t = 0 d^2/dt^2 e^(mu*t + 1/2 sigma^2 t^2) at t =0 d^2/dz^2 exp(mu*z + 1/2 sigma^2 z^2) at z=0 Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  15. 15. Transformations If X ~ Normal(μ, σ2), and Y = a(X + b) Y ~ Normal(b + μ, a 2σ2) If a = -μ and b = 1/σ, we often write Z = (X - μ) / σ Z ~ Normal(0, 1) = standard normal Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  16. 16. Example Let X ~ Normal(5, 10) What is P(3 < X < 8) ? Learn how to answer that question on Thursday. Wednesday, 10 February 2010
  17. 17. P (Z < z) = Φ(z) Φ(−z) = 1 − Φ(z) P (−1 < Z < 1) = 0.68 P (−2 < Z < 2) = 0.95 P (−3 < Z < 3) = 0.998 Wednesday, 10 February 2010
