**7.2. Bivariate Continuous Random Variables**

In this section, we shall extend the idea of probability density functions of one random variable to that of two random variables. Definition 7.5. The joint probability density function of the random variables X and Y is an integrable function f(x, y) such that

**Marginal probability density function:**

Definition 7.6. Let (X, Y ) be a continuous bivariate random variable. Let f(x, y) be the joint probability density function of X and Y . The function is called the marginal probability density function of X. Similarly, the function

**7.3. Conditional Distributions**

First, we motivate the definition of conditional distribution using discrete random variables and then based on this motivation we give a general definition of the conditional distribution. Let X and Y be two discrete random variables with joint probability density f(x, y).

21
**7.3. Conditional Distributions**

Then by definition of the joint probability density, we have f(x, y) = P(X = x, Y = y). If A = {X = x}, B = {Y = y} and f (y) = P(Y = y), then from the above equation we have P ({X = x} / {Y = y}) = P (A/B)

22
**7.3. Conditional Distributions**

If we write the P ({X = x} / {Y = y}) as g(x / y), then we have

Definition 7.8. Let X and Y be any two random variables with joint density f(x, y) and marginals f1(x) and f2(y). The conditional probability density function g of X, given (the event) Y = y, is defined as

24
**7.3. Conditional Distributions**

Similarly, the conditional probability density function h of Y , given (the event) X = x, is defined as

33
**7.4. Independence of Random Variables**

In this section, we define the concept of stochastic independence of two random variables X and Y . The conditional robability density function g of X given Y = y usually depends on y. If g is independent of y, then the random variables X and Y are said to be independent. This motivates the following definition.

34
**7.4. Independence of Random Variables**

Definition 7.8. Let X and Y be any two random variables with joint density f(x, y) and marginals f1(x) and f2(y). The random variables X and Y are (stochastically) independent if and only if
