    Convolution of two probabilities (non-independent)

    I was wondering if the following is true, where * denotes convolution: p(A|C,D) = p(A|B) * p(B|C,D). Basically, I want to know if convolution will marginalize out B. My intuition says this is correct, but I'm not entirely certain. Thank you. Josh

    Expected Value of Convolution

    I am interested in estimating E[g(h(X))] where... - X ~ Normal(mu,sigma) - h(.) = CDF of Standard Normal distribution - g(.) = inverse CDF of Beta distribution with known parameters alpha and beta Any suggestions as to how to proceed? Taylor approximation? Any help appreciated. Jesse

    How to combine Probability Distribution Function of Two correlated variables?

    I have the probability distribution Functions(PDF) of the wind speeds of two wind sites which have a certain Pearson's correlation coefficient. How can I combine the PDFs of these two sites? I don't have the time stamped data of these two sites, rather, I only have the distributions and...
