$\mathrm E$

The Système Internationale d'Unités metric scaling prefix denoting $10^{\, 18 }$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm {E} .

Hexadecimal

$\mathrm E$ or $\mathrm e$

The hexadecimal digit $14$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm E  or \mathrm e.

Set

$E$

Used by some authors to denote a general set.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(E\) is E .


Identity Element

$e$

Used to indicate the identity element in a general algebraic structure.

If $e$ is the identity of the structure $\left({S, \circ}\right)$, then a subscript is often used: $e_S$.

This is particularly common when more than one structure is under discussion.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(e_S\) is e_S .

Euler's number

$e$

Euler's number $e$ is the base of the natural logarithm $\ln$.

$e$ is defined to be the unique real number such that the value of the (real) exponential function $e^x$ has the same value as the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the function.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(e\) is e .

Experiment

$\mathcal E$


An experiment, which can conveniently be denoted $\mathcal E$, is a measure space $\left({\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}\right)$ such that $\Pr \left({\Omega}\right) = 1$.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\mathcal E\) is \mathcal E .


Expectation

$\operatorname E \paren X$


Let $X$ be a discrete random variable.

The expectation of $X$ is written $\operatorname E \paren X$, and is defined as:

$\expect X := \displaystyle \sum_{x \mathop \in \image X} x \Pr \paren {X = x}$

whenever the sum is absolutely convergent, that is, when:

$\displaystyle \sum_{x \mathop \in \image X} \size {x \Pr \paren {X = x} } < \infty$


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\operatorname E \paren X\) is \operatorname E \paren X .


Conditional Expectation

$\operatorname E \paren {X \mid B}$


Let $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$ be a probability space.

Let $X$ be a discrete random variable on $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$.

Let $B$ be an event in $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$ such that $\Pr \paren B > 0$.


The conditional expectation of $X$ given $B$ is written $\operatorname E \paren {X \mid B}$ and defined as:

$\displaystyle \operatorname E \paren {X \mid B} = \sum_{x \mathop \in \image X} x \Pr \paren {X = x \mid B}$

where:

$\Pr \paren {X = x \mid B}$ denotes the conditional probability that $X = x$ given $B$

whenever this sum converges absolutely.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\operatorname E \paren {X \mid B}\) is \operatorname E \paren {X \mid B} .
