**Problem 1. **Let f be a density. Now consider the family of densities {ft : t ∈ R} defined by

ft(x)=f(x−t), x∈R.

Show that the family {ft : t ∈ R} is Hellinger differentiable at each θ if it is Hellinger

differentiable at 0.

**Problem 2. **Let ft denote the Uniform(0, t) density for t > 0, i.e.,

ft(x) = (1/t)**1**(0,t)(x).

Verify the identity

∞2 (1+∆−1)2 ∆

√

f1+∆(x) − f1(x) dx = 1 + ∆ + 1 + ∆

for ∆ > 0. Use this to conclude that the family {ft : t > 0} is not Hellinger differentiable at 1.

**Problem 3. **Let X1,...,Xn be independent Binomial(m,θ) with known m and unknownθ in the interval (0, 1). Find the BUE of θ. Does the BUE achieve the information bound given by the Cram ́er-Rao inequality?
