Fourier transform of sampling function

Calculate the Fourier transform of $f_{ZOH}$ (the zero-order hold reconstruction of a sampled signal). Where $f_{ZOH} (t)= f(kT), \ \ kT \leq t < (k+1)T,$ and the sampled signal is f_s = f(t) \...

Getting a feel for the Normal-Inverse-Wishart conjugate prior to multivariate normal distribution

I am trying to get a feel for the Normal-Inverse-Wishart conjugate prior, which I have started to use, sparingly, in my work, where I am trying to cluster multivariate normal data. As Wikipedia ...

Sampling from Irwin-Hall distribution using triangular distribution

So I need to sample from the Irwin-Hall distribution using rejection sampling with the triangular distribution. I built 2 functions: The first is d_irwin which receives an $x\in supp(g)$ and the n we ...

Generating continuous random variables from a set of Bernoullis

Given a set of $Bernoulli(p_i)$ variables with each having its own arbitrary $p_i$, is there an efficient way to generate continuous random variables sampled from an arbitrary distriubution? To ...

Intuition behind sampling distributions – specific case

I'm still trying to understand the basics of understanding the intuition of sampling distributions and calculating the sampling distributions of common estimators. For example, I understand the ...
Given a probability distribution vector $\overrightarrow{p}=(p_1,p_2,\cdots,p_n)$ (of course $\sum_{i}^n p_i=1$), assuming we can sample the distribution with obtaining $i$ with probability $p_i$, how ...
