Statistics 330/600 Due: Thursday 17 February 2005: Sheet 5 *(5.1) Suppose E i is a collection of subsets of X i with X i E i ,fo r i = 1 , 2. DeFne E 1 × E 2 : ={ E 1 × E 2 : E 1 E 1 , E 2 E 2 } Show that σ ( E 1 × E 2 ) = σ( E 1 ) σ( E 2 ) , as sigma-Felds on X 1 × X 2 . Hint: Show that A 1 : ={ A σ( E 1 ) : A × E 2 σ ( E 1 × E 2 ) for each E 2 E 2 } is a sigma-Feld. Then what? *(5.2) Let X be a set equipped with a countably generated sigma-Feld A . That is, A = σ( E ) where E ={ E i : i N } . Suppose also that { x }∈ A for each x in X . Without loss of generality, suppose E is stable under complements. (i) Show that { x }=∩{ E i :

Suppose X : Ä → X is an F \ A-measurable map with distribution P . Suppose X is independent of itself. Show that there exists some x ∈ X for which X = x almost surely [ P ]. Hint: What do you know about P ⊗ P 1 c ?...
