Unformatted text preview: Second Edition 6-5 6.19 To check if the family of distributions of X is complete, we check if E p g ( X ) = 0 for all p , implies that g ( X ) ≡ 0. For Distribution 1, E p g ( X ) = 2 X x =0 g ( x ) P ( X = x ) = pg (0) + 3 pg (1) + (1- 4 p ) g (2) . Note that if g (0) =- 3 g (1) and g (2) = 0, then the expectation is zero for all p , but g ( x ) need not be identically zero. Hence the family is not complete. For Distribution 2 calculate E p g ( X ) = g (0) p + g (1) p 2 + g (2)(1- p- p 2 ) = [ g (1)- g (2)] p 2 + [ g (0)- g (2)] p + g (2) . This is a polynomial of degree 2 in p . To make it zero for all p each coefficient must be zero. Thus, g (0) = g (1) = g (2) = 0, so the family of distributions is complete. 6.20 The pdfs in b), c), and e) are exponential families, so they have complete sufficient statistics from Theorem 6.2.25. For a), Y = max { X i } is sufficient and f ( y ) = 2 n θ 2 n y 2 n- 1 , < y < θ....
