Mutual information (MI) is an important information theoretic concept which has many applications in telecommunications, in blind source separation, and in machine learning.

In this paper, we address the difference between MI and correlation from the viewpoint of discovering ...

  • Probability Theory

    The reason why many wireless communication books start from probability theory is that wireless communications deal with uncertainty. If there are no channel impairments by nature, we can receive the transmitted messages without any distortion and do not need to care about probability theory. A random signal cannot be predicted but we may forecast future values from previous events using probability theory. When we consider a signal over time, we find the energy spectral density (ESD) and power spectral density (PSD). A correlation function is used to know the relationship between random variables. When we face a noise that the nature has made electrical component noises or thermal noises, we assume it follows Gaussian distribution because of central limit theorems. This theorem means that the sample average and sum have Gaussian distribution regardless of distribution of each random variable.

  • Estimating Reliability Parameters

    For our model to be as accurate as possible, we require?>good?> estimates of reli¬ability parameters. Without any data related to the system we are designing, expert opinions of reliability engineers and analysts are used. These experts will usually base their estimates on reliability data similar projects, systems, or components. Vendors may provide some reliability data as well. If we have test data from the system being built, or better yet, data from deployed systems, we use that information to update our estimates. Monte Carlo simulations are also helpful for our estimation. A powerful technique is the use of Bayes's theorem, which provides a method for combining previous estimates with new data to create a new estimate that com¬bines both.

  • Random Processes

    In this chapter, some of the basic notions and mathematical models of statistical and deterministic mechanics are combined into a stochastic system model, which represents the evolution over time of key statistical parameters in systems with uncertain dynamics. These stochastic system models are used to define random processes (RPs) in continuous time and in discrete time (also called random sequences). They represent the state of knowledge about a dynamic system-including its state of uncertainty. They also represent what we know about a dynamic system, including a quantitative model for what we do not know. Properties of uncertain dynamic systems are characterized by statistical parameters such as_means_,_correlations_, and_covariances_. By using only these numerical parameters, one can obtain finite representations of some probability distributions, which is important for implementing the solution on digital computers.

  • Monte Carlo Simulation

    Monte Carlo simulation consists of imitating the stochastic behavior of a physical system. Monte Carlo simulation is often used as an alternative to analytical methods. Basic concepts of Monte Carlo simulation applied to power systems are described using an example of a system with two independent components. Random sampling, or nonsequential simulation, consists of performing random sampling over the aggregate of all possible states the system can assume during the period of interest. In sequential methods, the mathematical model of the system is made to generate an artificial history over time, and appropriate statistical inferences are drawn from this history. It is crucial to sample sufficient number of states to estimate reliability indices. The chapter describes the estimation and convergence criterion of both techniques, namely: random sampling and sequential sampling. It explains variance reduction techniques, such as importance sampling, control variate sampling, antithetic variate sampling, and Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS).
