Math 5010-001, University of Utah, Summer 2010
Assignments

• Week 9 (no due date)
• Final exam preparation: The final exam will be closed notes and closed book. Please be prepared in advance!
• Problems: Instead of 25 problems, you need to look only at the following 15 problems. [The exam will still have 5.] However, be aware that there is a little bit of reading involved too. So please start soon.
Exercises (p. 136) # 27.1, 27.2, 27.3; Exercises (p. 146) #29.1, 29.3; Exercises (p. 151) #30.1, 30.4; Exercise (p. 171) #33.2; Exercises (p.192) #36.3, 36.4; Exercises (p. 197) #37.3, 37.4; Exercises (p. 203) #38.1, 38.2, 38.3.
• Topics covered: All lectures but Lectures 34 and 35. Next Thursday (July 26th), we will wrap up the theory of expectation by way of developing moment generating functions and use that to prove the central limit theorem [as well as the law of large numbers].
• Topics not covered: Those who go on to take more probability, stochastic processes, and theoretical statistics, will do well to have a look at Lectures 34 and 35 on conditional expectations. This is a very important topic, but we will not have the time to cover it.
• Good luck!
