ST561 Fall 2010 Homework 9 Due: Monday, Nov. 29th, 2010 1. Let X = ( X 1 ,...,X p ) T follow a multivariate normal distribution with mean μ and covariance matrix Σ. That is X MV N ( μ , Σ) with joint pdf f X ( x ) = 1 (2 π ) p/ 2 | Σ | 1 / 2 exp ' - ( x - μ ) T Σ - 1 ( x - μ ) / 2 where | Σ | is the determinant of Σ. Let Y = A X , where A is a p × p matrix with its inverse A - 1 exists. Use the method of transformation, show that Y MV N ( A μ , A Σ A T ). 2. Let Z = ( Z 1 ,...,Z p
