    Second derivative test for univariate functions

    Hi all, My textbook gives a bad proof for the second derivative test, and to me it's basically intuition instead of understanding it in a slightly more rigorous way. I looked online at http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcI/DerivativeAppsProofs.aspx and we already did the mean value...

    Probability convergence with OLS estimators - univariate vs bivariate

    Hey guys, this is my first post here. I was hoping you could help point out how I should go about tackling this proof: Let (Y_1, X_1, _1, X_1,_2)...,(Y_n, X_n,_1, X_n,_2) be an i.i.d. sample from (Y, X_1, X_2) satisfying: Y = \beta_0 + \beta_1X_1 + \beta_2X_2 + U where (1, X_1, X_2) is not...

    Univariate Transformation and MGFS- can anyone help

    im stuck on these questions..... 1. If X is a standard normal random variable, find a) the p.d.f of X^3 b) the p.d.f of (X+1)^2 and...... 2. If Z has a standard normal distribution then using m.g.fs show that the random variable X=2Z + 4 also has a normal distribution, and write down its...
