As recently pointed on this thread, we are going to get rid of functions. Today I noticed that we also have partial-functions. I feel that this tag can go just as well as part of the process.

Theorem: Suppose $(X,d)$ is a metric space and $f:[0,1] \rightarrow X$ is a path in $X$ with no-zero finite length $L$. Then, there exists a path $g:[0,1] \rightarrow X$ from $f(0)$ to $f(1)$ that has the same image as $f$ and satisfies $lth_t(g) = tL ~\forall ~t \in [0,1]$. In particular $g$ is ...

Is sufficiently different from the existing tag?

Two discrete random variables $X$ and $Y$, whose values are positive integers, have the joint probability mass function: $$p(x,y) = 2^{-x-y}$$ I need to determine the marginal probability mass functions, which I believe to be defined as $p(x) = \sum p(x,y)$ for $y$ and $p(y) = \sum p(x,y)$ for ...

Is there any situation in that joint probability $p(x,y)$ equals to marginal probability $p(x)$? What is the interpretation of this situation?

Where does the term "marginal" in "marginal probability" or "marginal distribution" come from?

Let $X$ and $Y$ be random variables with joint probability mass function $f(x,y) = k \cdot \dfrac {2^{x+y}}{x!y!}$, for $x, y \in \{ 0, 1, 2, \cdots \}$ and for a positive constant $k$. How can I derive the marginal probability mass function of $X$? How do I evaluate $k$? Are $X$ and $Y$ ind...

Hi , I tried to resolve this question by taking the marginal pdf of $Y$ , then find it's expected value . But apparently this is not correct, they used the pdf of $f(x,y)$ in the solution and performed double integral to find $E(Y)$, can someone explain me why? Thanks

In the book of Haskell Programming by C.
