Columbia University IEOR 4404: Simulation Fall 2009 Solution to Assignment 2, due on Sep. 24th 1. Use simulation to approximate the following integrals. Compare your estimate with the exact answer if known. θ 1 = Z 0 ( - 2 x - x 2 )(1 + x + x 2 ) - 2 dx (1) θ 2 = Z 0 Z x 0 e - x y dy dx (2) [Hint: Let I y ( x ) = 1 if y < x 0 if y x and use this function to equate the integral to one in which both terms go from 0 to .] 2. Use simulation to approximate Cov( U,sin ( U )), where U is uniform on (0 , 1). Compare your approxi- mation with the exact answer. 3. For uniform (0 , 1) random variables U 1 ,U 2 ,... define N = Minimum ( n : n X i =1 U i > 1 ) That is, N is equal to the number of random numbers that must be summed to exceed 1.
