Unformatted text preview: UC Berkeley Department of Statistics STAT 210A: Introduction to Mathematical Statistics Problem Set 3 Fall 2006 Issued: Thursday, September 14, 2006 Due: Thursday, September 21, 2006 Graded Problem 3.1 The inverse Gaussian distribution IG( , ) has density function r 2 exp( p ) x- 3 / 2 exp- 1 2 ( x + x ) , x > , > , > . (a) Show that this density constitutes an exponential family. (b) Show that this family is a scale family. (c) Show that the statistics X = 1 n n i =1 X i and S = n i =1 ( 1 /X i- 1 / X ) are complete and sufficient statistics. Problem 3.2 Determine the natural parameter space of the associated exponential family of dimension one with X = R , T ( x ) = x , and (a) h ( x ) = exp(- x 2 ). (b) h ( x ) = exp(-| x | ). (c) h ( x ) = exp(-| x | ) / (1 + x 2 ). Problem 3.3 Let Z be distributed according to a standard normal. For a given R , define G ( x ) = P ( Z x | Z > ) (a) Prove that G is a cdf for any ....
