Then for any k > 0, there is a constant c such that k 1 x e tx e ( log x ) 2 / 2 dx c k 1 x dx = c log x | k = . Hence M x ( t ) does not exist. 2.37 a. The graph looks very similar to Figure 2.3.2 except that f 1 is symmetric around 0 (since it is standard normal). b. The functions look like t 2 / 2 – it is impossible to see any difference. c.

### What students are saying

• 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.
