Homework 7

Date Assigned: Tuesday, March 19, 2002
Date Due: Thursday, March 28, 2002

  1. Reading: Continue studying Chapter 2, sections 2.1 through 2.7.

  2. Exam 2 will be on Thursday, April 4. Note that the syllabus listed the date for Exam 2 as April 2. However, I will be out of town from April 1-5, so I'd like to have a review session on April 2, and then give the exam on April 4. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about this.

    Homework 8 will be posted by March 26, and it will be due on April 2. Exam 2 will cover Chapter 2 of the text.

  3. Please solve the following problems in the text for Thursday, March 28:
    Section 2.4: 1, 3.
    Section 2.5: 2, 3, 5, 6 (refer to Appendix A, rather than deriving from scratch), and 9.

  4. Extra credit (or "make-up" if you missed any previous MATLAB assignments, or just for fun):

    Develop a MATLAB simulation of the game described in Problem 2.5.9. Compare your simulation results with the analytical PMF PY(y) and expected value E[Y].

  5. Presentations: The following students are asked to present their solution on March 28 to the indicated problem. Each pair of students will present their solution together.
