**Unformatted text preview: **Exercises ' .. ._-._._ 21 Neyman--Pearson approach to decision making (hypothesis testing) when prior probabilities are
absent. The latter, in Section 134, could be omitted. Chapter 14 formally treats independence.
It is possible to omit the initial discussion of independent events and start with Section 14.4
on independent random variables. One could then reconstruct the story of independent events by
replacing-them by their indicator function random variables. Chapter 15 on conditional expectation
is essential, although Section 15.6 on Kalman ﬁltering can be easily omitted. All of Chapter 15
should be covered with the exception of Section 15.10.. If time permits, elements of Chapter
16 on Bayesian inference are well worth presenting as important applications of conditional
expectation. I believe that characteristic functions, as discussed in Chapter 17, provide an essential
alternative deseription of probability that enables us to solve many problems that would otherwise
be intractable. Chapter 18 on probability bounds has material of value in practice, but it can be
omitted with the eitception of Section 18.2 on Chebychev bounds. Chapters 19 and 20 really
belong in a second course on random processes. They were included here to accommodate those who think otherwise. EXERCISES E0.1 Evaluate the following difference of two sums: 100 _ mo
