Economics/Mathematics C103: Introduction to Mathematical Economics Problem Set 1 Due 17 January 2009 1. Consider the exponential distribution F ( x ) = 1 - exp( - λx ). Assume ω = . (a) Compute the probability density function. (b) Compute its expectation. (The answer is in the book, but of course you are expected to prove why.) (c) Compute the expectation of γ ( x ) = x 2 . (d) Compute its hazard ratio. (e) Compute the conditional expectation E [ X | X < x ]. 2. Consider the uniform distribution F ( x ) = x/ω on [0 ]. for some arbitrary ω . (a) Compute the probability density function.
