Discrete Random Variables over Domains
In this paper we initiate the study of discrete random variables over domains. Our work is inspired by work of Daniele Varacca, who devised indexed valuations as models of probabi...

Using Theorem Proving to Verify Expectation and Variance for Discrete Random Variables
Statistical quantities, such as expectation (mean) and variance, play a vital role in the present age probabilistic analysis. In this paper, we present some formalization of expect...

Utilities as Random Variables: Density Estimation and Structure Discovery
Decision theory does not traditionally include uncertainty over utility functions. We argue that the a person's utility value for a given outcome can be treated as we treat o...

The Common Randomness Capacity of a Pair of Independent Discrete Memoryless Channels
—We study the following problem: two agents Alice and Bob are connected to each other by independent discrete memoryless channels. They wish to generate common randomness, i.e., ...

Selectivity estimators for multidimensional range queries over real attributes
Estimating the selectivity of multidimensional range queries over real valued attributes has significant applications in data exploration and database query optimization. In this p...
