Show that i. @ ( a x ) [email protected] = a ii. @ ( Ax ) [email protected] = A 6. A matrix A is idempotent if AA = A: Show that I & X ( X X ) & 1 X , where X n ± k , is idempotent. 7. Use the de&nitions V ( X ) = E ( X & E ( X )) 2 and Cov ( X;Y ) = E [( X & E ( X ))( Y & E ( Y ))] and properties of the expectation operator, along with the assumptions that E ( X ) = 0 ; E ( y ) = 0 , to demonstrate that i. V ar ( aX + bY ) = a 2 V ( X ) + 2 abCov ( X;Y ) + b 2 V ( Y ) : ii. Cov ( aX + bY;cX + dY ) = acV ( X ) + ( ad + bc ) Cov ( X;Y ) + bdV ( Y ) . 2...
