Here is the exercise set with many new proposed solutions, primarily from Sec. 6 and Sec. 11. The linear regression example that became quite messy during lecture today is included as a new Exercise 7.4, with a proposed solution in the solution section.

Here is a list of what we have covered during the lectures, and in what chapters from the CB-book this can be found.

A small correction (Ex. 11.10) and one new proposed solution (Ex. 5.3). Here. Don't use too much time on Ex. 11.4. We have not directly developed the tools to solve it.

T(X) = (\sum_{i=1}^n X_i^2 ,\sum_{i=1}^n X_i). 

g(T) = \sum_{i=1}^n X_i^2 - \frac{2}{n+1} ( \sum_{i=1}^n X_i )^2 .

For the exam you are allowed to bring one handwritten A4 page with whatever you want written on it. One page means that you are not allowed to write on both sides of the paper, and handwritten means the original handwritten thing. No scanning.

The extra session takes place in the same room as usual, at 14:15 tomorrow.  I'll go through these exercises:

8.7, 10.3, 11.1, 11.5, 11.6, 11.7, 11.8, 11.10, 11.12

If time allows I might also illustrate the Lindeberg theorem.

Send me an email quickly if you have some exercises you want to add to this list.

New exercises for Thursday in Section 11 in the updated exercise set.

On Thursday we'll talk some more about chapter 8, and then continue to linear regression and associated topics, approx. chapter 11.3 in the CB book.

New exercises in Section 11 of the updated exercise set

On Thursday we'll continue chapter 8, and you'll have the oblig back (you can also come by my office on and pick it up some time after lecture). Think about things that could be useful to cover in the extra session if you plan to attend it.

Do the exercises in Section 10 of the updated exercise set. This version of the exercise set also includes some more proposed solutions. 

On Thursday we'll start chapter 8 from the CB book. Due to faglig-pedagogisk dag, the lecture will only last for two hours.

The oblig will be made available on Friday.

There is a typo in Exercise 8.5a). It's supposed to be $X_n/n \to_p 0$, and not $\bar{X}_n \to_p 0$. Many thanks to the student who made me aware of this!

On Thursday we'll start Chapter 7 in C&B on point estimation. Sections 7.2.1, 7.2.2, 7.2.3, and all of 7.3, will be part of the curriculum. 

Do exercises 14, 15 and 16 from Nils' Notes and Exercises, and the exercises in Section 8 in the exercise set.    

Published Sep. 22, 2019 11:56 PM

Go to Nils' Lecture Notes and Exercises and do Ex. 6, 7, 8, 9,10, 11, 12, 13. We have done some of these exercises in class, and some of them are covered by previous exercises. 

In the lecture we'll finish up Chapter 5.5 from C&B, and if time allows, start Chapter 7.  





Published Sep. 18, 2019 9:41 AM

There are a few typos in exercises_STK4011_160919.pdf  

Ex. 6.5 I've written f_{(a,b)} and f_{\theta} without defining \theta = (a,b). 

Ex. 6.10 It should have been \theta \in (-1,1). But I don't think this makes much of a difference for the questions that follow.

Ex. 6.21 The \delta(X) on the second line should be \delta_1(X). That is, we suppose that the estimator \delta_1(X) appearing in \delta_2(X) = E_{\theta}[\delta_1(X) \mid T]  is unbiased for \theta.

If you spot errors in the exercise sets, please write me at

Here you can find new exercises for Thursday. All the new exercises are in Section 6. Note that some of the exercises of Section 6 have been extended since last week.

On Thursday we'll start chapter 5.5 in C&B.

I plan on posting the mandatory assignment (the oblig) 11 October, with due date two weeks later.

Here you can find new exercises for Thursday. You'll find them at the end of Section 3, in Section 6, and in Section 7.  

On Thursday we'll go through the remainder of Chapter 6.2, try to catch up with the exercises, and perhaps start Chapter 5.5.
