Unformatted text preview: UC Berkeley Department of Statistics STAT 210A: Introduction to Mathematical Statistics Problem Set 3 Fall 2007 Issued: Thursday, September 13 Due: Thursday, September 20 Problem 3.1 Consider an exponentially distributed variate with density f X ( t ) := braceleftBigg λ exp(- λt ) for t > otherwise . The parameter λ > 0 is known as the failure rate. (a) Suppose X has an exponential distribution rate with failure rate λ . Find the distribu- tion of Y = λX ; (b) Let X 1 ,... ,X n be a sample from an exponential distribution, and let ¯ X = X 1 + ... + Xn n . Show that ¯ X and ( X 2 1 + ... + X 2 n ) ¯ X 2 are independent. (c) Let X (1) ≤ ··· ≤ X ( n ) be the order statistics and ¯ X = X 1 + ··· + X n n the sample average. Show that ¯ X and X (1) X ( n ) are independent. Problem 3.2 Determine the cumulant generating function A and Ω for the associated exponential family of dimension one with X = R , T ( x ) = x , and (a) h ( x ) = exp(- x 2 )....
