Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a random variable X with some zero-mean distribution.

I have a function Y of this r.v. given by something complicated

[itex]Y=(a+X)^\frac{2}{3}[/itex]

Is there an explicit way of finding the distribution of Y or even its mean?

Thanks
