# Questions tagged [convolution]

Convolution is a function-valued operation on two functions $f$ and $g$: $\int _{-\infty }^{\infty }f(\tau )g(t-\tau )d\tau$. Often used for obtaining the density of a sum of independent random variables. This tag should also be used for the inverse operation of deconvolution. DO NOT use this tag for convolutional neural networks.

### Autocorrelation of convolution integral

Work out the autocorrelation $r_Y(\tau) = E[Y(t)Y(t+\tau)]$ with $Y(t) = \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} h(t-u) x(u)$ and $X$ a WSS, ergodic process I always get: $h(t)* h(t+\tau) * r_X(\tau)$ (with $*$ ...

### Sum of Bernoulli variables with different success probabilities [duplicate]

Let $x_i$ be independent Bernoulli random variables with success probabilities $p_i$. That is, $x_i=1$ with probability $p_i$ and $x_i=0$ with probability $1-p_i$. Is there a closed expression or an ...

### Deconvolution of sum results in negative numbers

Given $T=G+A$ where $A$ and $G$ are independent random variables, I'd like to estimate the distribution of $G$ given empirical (measured) distributions of $T$ and $A$. Of note: all three random ...

### Convolution of difference distribution doesn't conserve expectation - faulty assumption?

I have observations of a system which I hypothesize is defined as $T = A + G$ where $T,A, G$ are random variables. I've measured the empirical continuous distributions $T$ and $A$, and the question is,...

### Distribution of the convolution of squared normal and chi-squared variables?

the following problem came up recently while analyzing data. If the random variable X follows a normal distribution and Y follows a $\chi^2_n$ distribution (with n dof), how is $Z = X^2 + Y^2$ ...

### Two-sample bootstrap?

I have two independent samples of observations. From each sample I produce a statistic. Let's denote these as $\theta_1$ and $\theta_2$. I'd like to test the hypothesis that $H_0: \Theta_1=\Theta_2$, ...

### Express product as convolution? Or, given $f(s)$, find $g$ satisfying $f(s)=\mathbb{E}[g(X)]$ where $X\sim \mathcal{N}(0,s^2)$

Given a function $f(\mu)$ (satisfying certain properties), it is possible to find a function $g(x)$ such that $f(\mu)=\int_{-\infty}^{\infty} g(x)\phi(x-\mu) dx$, where $\phi$ is the standard normal ...

### Standard deviations and confidence intervals (weighted) running average

My question is related to this one. I am calculating averages, actually as many as I have samples because I calculate a running average, and for equal weighting I know how to calculate the $95\%$ CI, ...

### Is output of Deamer deconvolution not a density?

I have a Model Y= X+e and need the density of X. The deamer package deconvolves the density for X, but if I use the simpsons rule to integrate this density, I get values which are above 1. The ...
