Problem 1
Fix

,i

,...,i
k
∈ I
.
We shall show that
Y
i
1
,...Y

are independent by showing that
P

∀

Step1:
For any bounded continuous functions
f

,f
2
,...,f
k
, we have
E

Y
l

f

(
Y

)
!
=

Y
l
=1
E
f
l
(
Y

)
.
X

Y

implies that
f

)
a.s.
→
f

Y

,
and since all the functions are bounded,
Bounded Convergence Theorem (or DCT) can be applied:
E

f

,
where
the equality before last comes from the independence of

k

.
Step 2:
Consider the function

Then
