Antithetic variables.


e approximate $E\left( X\right) $ with MATH MATH where $\xi$ is the standard normal variable. Suppose the $X_{k}$ is drawn as a function of some uniformly distributed on $\left[ 0,1\right] $ variable : MATH . We consider MATH as an alternative procedure for simulation of $E\left( X\right) $ . The $\tilde{X}$ is an unbiased estimator: MATH and the convergence in distribution is MATH We want to compare MATH with MATH . This is a valid comparison if it costs nothing to generate $F\left( -U\right) $ in addition to $F\left( U\right) $ . We have MATH MATH MATH Hence, it suffices to have MATH to improve efficiency of simulation.
