### Methods for Uncorrelating data - Comparison

I see that both PCA and Cholesky Decomposition could be used for uncorrelating correlated data. When should one be used? What are the assumptions made by each model. When do the methods fail? Are ...

### Probability of observing a false correlation and confidence limits

In oil and gas exploration/development it is common to use acustic impedance derived from reflection seismic surveys to predict the porosity measured in wells drilled in the reservoir. I often use ...

### Summing dependent random variables with unknown joint cdf

Suppose that X_1, X_2,... X_5000 are discrete and dependent non-identically distributed random variables, whose marginal distributions are known, but whose joint distribution is not known. Is there ...

### How do you prove that if $X_t \sim^{iid} (0,1)$, then $E(X_t^{2}X_{t-j}^{2}) = E(X_t^{2})E(X_{t-j}^{2})$?

Suppose we have a time series $X_t$ s.t. $X_t \sim^{iid} (0,1)$. How do you prove that if $X_t \sim^{iid} (0,1)$, then $E(X_t^{2}X_{t-j}^{2}) = E(X_t^{2})E(X_{t-j}^{2})$? Or, I guess, if ...

### What is this idea of “Minimum Correlation”?

So I was having a read of this paper here: Minimum correlation for any bivariate Geometric distribution. On the first page of he paper we encounter the following definition of "minimum correlation": ...
