In particular, eq. 174), written for the average m and the variance D ¼ 2 , produces the following rule m ¼ n X ak mk ; k¼1 D ¼ n X a2k Dk ð2:175Þ k¼1 If all variables have the same distribution and all the weights are equal, ai ¼ a, then eq. 172) is reduced to  ð j uÞ ¼ Ân ð j u aÞ; É ð j uÞ ¼ n Éð j u aÞ; k ¼ n ak k ð2:176Þ Since for an arbitrary Gaussian random variable all the cumulants of order higher than two are equal to zero, eq.

Finally, conditional densities can be used to define conditional moments and cumulants. 31 RANDOM VECTORS AND THEIR DESCRIPTION As in the case of a random variable, lower order moments and cumulants play a prominent role in the description of a random vector.

Random variables, 1 ; 2 ; . . ; n are called mutually independent if events f1 < x1 g; f2 < x2 g; . . ; fn < xn g are independent for any values of xi ; i ¼ 1; . . ; n. e.
