7. The symbol denotes convolution.
x(0X0 - x(t - r)y(r) dr
J - OO
8. Random variables are lower case (e.g., x and x). Values of random variables and nonrandom parameters are capital (e.g., X and X). In some estimation theory problems much of the discussion is valid for both random and nonrandom parameters. Here we depart from the above conventions to avoid repeating each equation.

9. The probability density of * is denoted by px() and the probability distribution by Px( ). The probability of an event A is denoted by Pr[]. The probability density of x, given that the random variable a has a value A, is denoted by Px\a(X\A). When a probability density depends on nonrandom parameter A we also use the notation px]a{X\A). (This is nonstandard but convenient for the same reasons as 8.)
10. A vertical line in an expression means such that or given that; that is Vx[A\x < X] is the probability that event A occurs given that the random variable * is less than or equal to the value of X.
11. Fourier transforms are denoted by both F(jw) and F(a>). The latter is used when we want to emphasize that the transform is a real-valued function of oj. The form used should always be clear from the context.
12. Some common mathematical symbols used include,
(i) <=c
(ii) t-+T~
(iii) A +
(iv) l.i.m.
(v) dR
(vi) Ar
(vii) A-1
(viii) 0
00 a
