### Sum of Binomial Coefficient products

I am trying to prove that $$\sum\limits_{y=0}^d \frac{{2x \choose y} {2d-2x \choose d-y} }{2d \choose d} = x$$ So far, I have tried using induction on $d$ but I am having trouble using the ...

### Random number distribution from a different distribution

Suppose I have a random number generator that generates random numbers $x$ with a normal distribution $p(x) \propto e^{-x^2}$ (modulo normalization, but lets keep it simple). Now, out of these ...

### Find the probability $P[ x(t) \le 1]$ where $x(t)$ is a filtered Poisson process (rect pulses)

I can't understand the following question: "The random process x(t) is defined as $$x(t) = \sum_{n=- \infty}^{+\infty} rect(\frac{t-\tau_{n}}{T}) \quad ,\quad t \ \epsilon \ (R)$$ where {$\tau_{n}$} ...

### Why does a Gaussian process have a gradient whose determinant is Gaussian?

I'm trying to understand something in Adler and Taylor's book, Random Fields and Geometry. Let $T \subset \mathbb{R}^N$ be a compact parameter set (for simplicity, suppose it is a closed hypercube) ...

### Probability Density of Convolution of Two Random Processes or Variables

Suppose that we have two stationary random processes $x(t)$ and $y(t)$ with probability density functions $f_{x}(x)$ and $f_{y}(y)$ respectively. Now suppose we form: $z(t) = x(t) \ast y(t)$ What is ...

### Random processes

I hope someone could tell me how to explain that "random process is continuous by probability" and "random process is differentiated by probability"? I know that definitions are these: Given a time ...

### sum of independent Rayleigh random variables [closed]

How do I find the probability density distribution (pdf) of the sum of independent Rayleigh random variables (whose probability density functions are known)? where is the reference? Could anybody ...

### Asymptotics of sum of binomial distributions

Definition 1: For any random variable $X$, we define $\mathrm{Bin}(p,X)$ as a variable with binomial distribution having parameters $p$ and $X$. Definition 2: For all $i \in \mathbb{N}$, define ...

### What's the difference between stochastic and random?

What's the difference between stochastic and random? I've read in the portuguese wikipedia that there's a difference, but I still didn't see this point on english wikipedia.
