If this limit is well-defined, and the result is independent of the method of shrinking the increments, then this limiting result is the Riemann integral value. Lebesgue integration works over a wider class of integrands (called distributions) than Riemann integration that only works on smooth functions. This is because a parameter is introduced and the Riemann integral is performed on the function for a particular value of the parameter, which then is allowed to go to a limit after integration.
Correlation is defined as ρ= xy − x y . σx σy This is the same definition for continuous or discrete distributions. The value of correlation is always between −1 and 1. The formula makes more intuitive sense rearranged as xy = x y + ρσx σy , which means the probability of two events x and y, occurring simultaneously, is just the product of their individual (unconditional) probabilities of occurrence only if they are uncorrelated, that is, ρ = 0, and the probability of coincidence is higher than the unconditional coincidence if the events are correlated, that is, ρ > 0, and it is lower if they are anti-correlated, namely, ρ < 0.
J(r, ϑ) ∂r ∂ϑ ∂r ∂ϑ We can now integrate over the angle ϑ (the argument does not depend on angle) to get a factor of 2π and then note, using the chain rule, that ∂p(r) = −rp(r), ∂r for p(x) defined above, to find I2 = drdϑrp(r) = 2π = 2π − exp − r2 2 drrp(r) = 2π [−p(r)]r=∞ r=0 r=∞ = 2π. r=0 So the result is I2 = 2π and the correctly normalized distribution is given by x2 1 exp − p(x) = √ 2 2π . It remains only to note that the mean and standard deviation of this Gaussian distribution have particular values, as shown in the exercises that follow the next section.
