If the problem is a proof, then you need words as well as formulas. Explain why your formulas follow one from another. 51. Suppose X 1 , X 2 , ... are IID random variables having mean and variance 2 . For each i 1 define Y i = 5 X j =1 X i + j Then Y 1 , Y 2 , ... is called a moving average of order 5 time series, MA(5) for short. It is a weakly stationary time series. (So far this repeats the setup for Problem 46.) If Y n = 1 n n X i =1 Y i show that Y n 5 = O p ( n 1 / 2 ) . 52. Suppose that X 1 , X 2 , ... are IID random variables. For some subset A of the real numbers, define Y i = I A ( X i ) , i = 1 , 2 ,... and Y n = 1 n n X i =1 Y i . Show that Y n converges in probability to Pr( X i A ), and in fact Y n Pr( X i A ) = O p ( n 1 / 2 ) ....
