2. e. 2). 23697 minutes. 3. 5 Multivariate probability density functions All the examples we have considered above have related to a single random variable. 3 are known as univariate distribution functions. In this section we consider the case of experiments where the observed outcomes are dependent on two or more random variables. The probability distributions of such experiments are known as multivariate probability functions. In the examples that follow, we discuss the case of bivariate (or two variable) problems.

In effect, the MPDF is calculated irrespective of what values are observed for all other random variables. It is often useful to consider the conditional probability density function (CPDF). Consider two random variables, X 1 and X 2 . 6) states that the probability that we will observe a particular value of X 2 , x2 , is conditional on X 1 being observed to take the value of x1 . 6. 00 probability that X 2 will take on the value 10–15 minutes given that X 1 is 15–20 minutes. 2). 3)). The JPDF and MPDF for continuous variables are similarly calculated for continuous variables although the mathematical computations are far more involved.

For such variables, comparisons are based solely on the qualities possessed by that particular variable. g. price, travel time). g. ). A second dimension is whether the variable is continuous or non-continuous in nature. g. speed, price, time, height). g. one could measure time in seconds, or thousandths of seconds, and so on). As such, continuous-level data will only be an approximation of the true value taken of the object under study, with the precision of the estimate dependent upon the instrument of measure.
