Problem Set 4, MGTECON 603, 2009 1 MGTECON 603, Econometrics I Fall 2009 Stanford GSB PROBLEM SET 4 Due: Monday October 26 rd in the CA session 1. Let X 1 , X 2 , . . ., X N be a set of N < independent random variables with Gumbel distributions. The cdf of X i is given by F ( x ) = exp ( - exp ( - x - γ + μ i )) where γ = 0 . 5775 is known as Euler’s constant and μ i is a parameter that is diFerent for each i . The mean of this distribution is given by μ i . (a) What is the distribution of Y 1 = max { X 1 , ..., X N } ? (b) What is Pr ( X 1 max { X 2 , ..., X N } )? 2. Let X 1 , X 2 , . . . be a sequence of independent random variables with a unit exponential distribution. Use the delta method to ±nd an approximate normal distribution for 1 / X n . 3. ²ind an example where the sequence X 1 , X 2 , . . . converges almost surely but not in quadratic mean. (You are allowed to use any book you like, but explain it well!!!) 4. Show that if the sequence X 1 , X
