Unformatted text preview: UC Berkeley Department of Statistics STAT 210A: Introduction to Mathematical Statistics Problem Set 7 Fall 2006 Issued: Thursday, October 19, 2006 Due: Thursday, October 26, 2006 Problem 7.1 Show that if X n d X > 0 and X n /Y n p 1, then Y n d X . Problem 7.2 Consider i.i.d. samples X i , i = 1 , . . . , n with finite moments up to order four. Consider the sample mean and variance X n = 1 n n summationdisplay i =1 X i , and s 2 n = 1 n n summationdisplay i =1 ( X i- X n ) 2 . (a) Prove that bracketleftbigg X n s 2 n bracketrightbigg- bracketleftbigg 2 bracketrightbigg d N parenleftbiggbracketleftbigg bracketrightbigg , bracketleftbigg 2 3 3 4- 4 bracketrightbiggparenrightbigg . (b) Use your result from (a) to find the asymptotic distribution of s 2 n / X n . (c) Suppose that the underlying distribution of X i is Poisson( ). Show that the asymptotic distribution of s 2 n / X n is independent of . Why might this be useful for testing whether....
