Hi ElMaestro,

❝ Let us go over it again:

❝ Let x be our sample.

❝ Let f(x|other shit) be a function of x, given some other shit.

❝ Let g(x|other shit) be another function of x, given the same other shit.


Like this (or any other funny transformation)?

other.shit <- function(x, funny) {
  eval(funny)
}
x <- rnorm(100, mean = 100, sd = 20)
f <- other.shit(x, funny = x^2)
g <- other.shit(x, funny = sqrt(x))
cor(f, g)
plot(f, g, las = 1, xlab = "f(x)", ylab = "g(x)")


❝ In general (and ideally layman's) terms, what properties of f and g would lead me to think f and g are independent.


❝ I assume it is implied that we are talking about independence from each other, at least when we try and think of f and g as numerators and denominators of the quantity defining t above. When this is the wrong perception, kindly correct me, please.


Completely confused. Can you try again, please?

The rise of biometry in this 20th century,
like that of geometry in the 3rd century before Christ,
seems to mark out one of the great ages or critical periods
in the advance of the human understanding.    R.A. Fisher
