Is there a random variable X such that E[X^2]=E[X]^2? if yes, is it self-independent ?

    this really seems like an interesting question, but maybe you can make it clearer, are you sure this is the right question?

    i tought that Var(x)=E[X^2]-E[X]^2 , so for Var(X)=0 E[X^2]=E[X]^2

    no E[X] is the expectation of x

    so based on my reasing then I have to find a random variable for which the Var(x)=0, i think

    if X is Cauchy Distributed then this will be true..., you can have the standardized Cauchy dist. 1/(pi*(1+(x^2)))

    Hard to call a variable "random" if it doesn't vary. It is also hard to show that this is true for the standardized Cauchy Distribution (basically a distribution with significant probability weight at (+/-)1/0).
