This category contains results about variances of random variables.

Definitions specific to this category can be found in Definitions/Variance.

Let $X$ be a discrete random variable.

Then the **variance of $X$**, written $\var X$, is a measure of how much the values of $X$ varies from the expectation $\expect X$, 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.
