Random Variable

Real-valued function defined on the sample space.

Y is a Random

Element s in the Variable

sample space

an experiment values of Y

Intuitively, a random variable (RV) is a

variable whose value cannot be known with

certainty, until the RV actually takes on a

value; In this sense, most hydrologic variables

are random variables

Random Variable

RVs of interest in hydrology

Rainfall in a given duration

Streamflow

Soil hydraulic properties (e.g. permeability, porosity)

Time between hydrologic events (e.g. floods of a

given magnitude)

Evaporation/Evapotranspiration

Ground water levels

Re-aeration rates

Random Variable

Any function of a random variable is also a random

variable.

For example, if X is a r.v., then Z = g(X) is also r.v.

Capital letters will be used for denoting r.v.s and small

letters for the values they take

e.g. X rainfall, x = 30 mm

Y stream flow, y = 300 Cu.m.

We define events on the r.v. e.g. X=30 ; a <Y <b

We associate probabilities to occurrence of events

represented as P[X=30], P[a<Y<b] etc.

Discrete & Continuous R.V.s

Discrete R.V.: Set of values a random variable can

assume is finite (or countably infinite).

No. of rainy days in a month (0,1,2.30)

Time (no of years) between two flood events (1,2.)

assume is infinite (the r.v. can take on values on a

continuous scale)

Amount of rainfall occurring in a day

Streamflow during a period

Flood peak over threshold

Temperature

Probability Distributions

Discrete random variables: Probability Mass Function

p(xi) > 0 ; p(xi) = 1

i

p(xi) = P [X = xi]

p(xi)

x1 x2 x3 ........... xn-1 xn

.

Probability Distributions

Cumulative distribution function : discrete RV

F(x) = p(xi)

xi < x

1.0

p(x1)+p(x2)

p(x1)

x1 x2 x3 ........... xn-1 xn

.

P[X = xi] = F(xi) F(xi-1)

The r.v., being discrete, cannot take values other

than x1, x2, x3. xn; P[X = x] = 0 for x x1,

x2, x3. xn

Some times, it is advantageous to treat

continuous r.v.s as discrete rvs.

e.g., we may discretise streamflow at a

location into a finite no. of class intervals and

associate probabilities of the streamflow

belonging to a given class

For continuous RVs, probability of the RV taking a value

exactly equal to a specified value is zero

That is P[X = x] = 0 ; X continuous

P[X = d] = P[d < X < d] = f ( x)dx = 0

Because P[X = a] = 0 for continuous r.v.

P[a < X < b] = P[a < X < b] = P[a < X < b] = P[a < X < b]

Mixed Distributions

P [X = d] 0

A finite probability associated with a discrete event X = d

At other values that X can assume, there may be a

continuous distribution.

e.g., probability distribution of rainfall during a day:

there is a finite probability associated with a day being

a non-rainy day, i.e., P [X=0], where x is rainfall during

a day; and for x0, the r.v. has a continuous

distribution ;

2. What is the probability that x lies between 3 and 5

3. Determine x such that P[X < x] = 0.5

e x /5 = 0.75

x / 5 = ln 0.75
