Today, we are wrapping up a three lecture series on how to find the density and distribution functions for functions of random variables. In this lesson, we are going to talk about moment generating functions which is the last of our three methods. We will set up the premises exactly as same as we did in the last two lectures, and then we will get into actual moment generating functions. The purpose of this lecture and the previous two videos is to teach you how to find the entire distribution function of U. Each distribution has its own moment generating function. You will see the binomial, geometric, hypergeometric, etc.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
