IE 581 — Introduction to Stochastic Simulation Name ___ < KEY > ___ One page of notes, front and back. Closed book. 60 minutes. 1. True or false. (3 points each) (a) T F By definition of simulation input , we do not know its distribution. (b) T F A sample quantile is an example of a sample mean. (c) T F A point estimator is a function of the simulation output. (d) T F If the simulation output are independent and identically distributed, then the usual estimator of the standard error of the point estimator θ ˆ is Y (1 Y ) / ( n 1). (e) T F When using the inverse transformation to generate random variates, exactly one random number u always is used to generate one random variate x . (f) T F Either x =−μ ln(1 u ) or x =−μ ln( u ) is the inverse transformation method for generating exponential random variates with mean μ . (g) T F The method of macro/micro replications is used to obtain improved point estimators. (h) T F When using antithetic variates, Θ ˆ = ( Θ ˆ A ˆ B ) / 2, we hope to induce negative correlation between Θ ˆ A and Θ ˆ B so that V( Θ ˆ A ) and V( Θ ˆ B ) will be reduced. (i) T F When using common random numbers to compare θ A to θ B , we hope to induce positive correlation between Θ ˆ A and Θ ˆ B so that V( Θ ˆ A ) and V( Θ ˆ B ) will be reduced. (j) T F In terms of the sample average, the number of independent observations equivalent to n dependent observations is n / γ 0 , where γ 0 is the sum of all autocorrelations.

    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.
