If the problem is a proof, then you need words as well as formulas. Explain why your formulas follow one from another. 8-1. Show that each of the following is an exponential family. Identify the natural parameter and natural statistic. (a) The Poi( μ ) family of distributions. (b) The Exp( λ ) family of distributions. (c) The Gam( α,λ ) family of distributions with both parameters unknown. The natural parameter vector and natural statistic vector are both two- dimensional. 8-2. Suppose X is Poi( μ ) and the prior distribution for μ is Gam( α,λ ), where α and λ are hyperparameters. Find the posterior distribution for μ . 8-3. Suppose X 1 , ... , X n are IID Gam( α,λ ), where α is known and λ is unknown. Suppose the prior distribution for λ is Gam( α 0 0 ), where α 0 and λ 0 are hyperparameters. Find the posterior distribution for
