$\operatorname{var} \left({X}\right)$

Let $X$ be a discrete random variable.

Then the variance of $X$, written $\operatorname{var} \left({X}\right)$, is a measure of how much the values of $X$ varies from the expectation $E \left({X}\right)$, and is defined as:

$\var X := \expect {\paren {X - \expect X}^2}$

That is: it is the expectation of the squares of the deviations from the expectation.

The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\operatorname{var} \left({X}\right)\) is \operatorname{var} \left({X}\right) .
