(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]\D = \{(x,y) \in \mathbb{R}^2 | x^2 + y^2 \leq 1\} [/tex] i.e. a disc or radius 1.

Write down the pdf f_{xy} for a uniform distribution on the disc.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex] f_{xy} = \frac{(x^2 + y^2)}{\pi} \mbox{for} x^2 + y^2 \leq 1[/tex] 0 otherwise

as the area of the disc pi and to make it uniform you divide by pi so the probability integrates to 1
