Control variate.


et $Z,X,Y$ be some random variables with finite second moments and MATH MATH We assume that $E\left( X\right) $ is known and $X$ is easy to simulate. The $Y$ is the variable of interest for some original problem. We mean to improve speed of convergence by calculating $Z$ instead of $Y$ . We have MATH We are looking for the value of $b$ that delivers the minimum of the above expression. MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH We see that for efficiency of this technique we need an easily simulated variable $X$ that has strong correlation with the variable of interest $Y$ .
