Exercises 5 through 10 are one big project broken into pieces. Do them in order, otherwise things won’t
make sense. And
for this HW, turn in your R code for each exercise.
5.
Read and thoroughly absorb Example C of Section 8.4. (Yes, that’s the exercise. No, there’s nothing
to turn in. I’m not kidding. Read Exercise 7 and you’ll see what I mean.)
6.
Pick an
α
uniformly at random in the interval (2
,
4). Pick a
λ
uniformly at random in the interval
(1
,
2). For the duration of this assignment, these are your own personal true values of
α
and
λ
in the gamma
density. Generate an i.i.d. sample of size 200 from your gamma density, and
save the sample so that
you can use it for the exercises below
. As your answer to this exercise, provide your true values of
α
and
λ
, and a histogram of your sample with the true gamma density superimposed.
