Statistics 610: Homework 4 Moulinath Banerjee University of Michigan Announcement: The Homework carries 120 points. Max possible score is 120. Due Monday, Nov 17. (1) Let X 1 , X 2 , . . . , X n be i.i.d. N ( μ, σ 2 ). Recall that we can construct a level 1 - α confidence interval for μ (when σ is unknown) by using a t –pivot that involves splitting α as β 1 + β 2 . Write down the interval in question and show the choice of β 1 = β 2 = α/ 2 is optimal in the sense that the interval then has smallest length. Let β ( μ ) denote the power function of the dual test for testing H 0 : μ = μ 0 in this model. Write down β ( μ ) analytically and show: (a) β ( μ 0 ) = 0 , ( b ) β ( μ ) converges to 1 as μ goes to -∞ or + . (c) β and β 0 are both symmetric functions about μ 0 . (d) Sketch a schematic graph of β . Hint: Conditioning on s , where s 2 is the unbiased estimate of σ 2 could help. (25) (2) In the above model, consider what is called the ”generalized likelihood ratio test” for testing μ = μ 0 against μ 6 = μ 0 , with σ unknown as before. This is given by: λ n = sup

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
