    Computing Values of Functions


    You are going to invest $20,000 in a portfolio consisting of assets X, Y, Z as follows: Asset Annual Return probability beta proportion X 10% 0.50 1.2 0.333 Y 8% 0.25 1.6 0.333 Z

    Assets - perfectly negatively correlated

    Combining two assets having perfectly negatively correlated returns will result in the creation of a portfolio with an overall risk that A. increases to a level above that of either asset B. decreases to a level below that of either asset C. stabilizes to a level between the asset with the higher risk and the asset

    Golf scheduling

    I have 8 players and all 8 play on friday only (making two foursomes). We will be playing for a total of 18 weeks. How should they be set up for each different friday so that at the end of 18 weeks they will have played in a foursome with every other player an equal number of times? ( or as close to equal as possible)

    Quantitative Method

    I need help on this question- A quantitative method may be sensitive to changes in the parameters involved in comparing alternatives. A careful analyst conducts a sensitivity analysis to see if the situation's outcome is susceptible to small changes in such parameters (say 5%). Is Decision Analysis susceptible to such a s

    Initial value problem using Green's function

    Consider the nonhomogeneous linear initial value problem x^2y'' - 2xy' + 2y = 30x(delta)(x - 3), y(1) = 1, y'(1) = 0 Note that y(x) = x satisfies the corresponding homogeneous differential equation. Solve the initial problem using a Green's function approach. What happens to y, y' and y'' at x=3?

    Mean Crash Damages

    In a bumper test, three types of autos were deliberately crashed into a barrier at 5 mph, and the resulting damage (in dollars) was estimated. Five test vehicles of each type were crashed, with the results shown below. Are the mean crash damages the same for these three vehicles? Please see the attached file for the fully for

    Ruler function proof

    Define Ruler Function g:(0,1)-> R (it is the usual ruler function available online) as g(x) = { 1/q if x = p/q, p and q are relatively prime { 0 if x is irrational. Show (without using Riemann-Lebesgue Theorem) that g is Riemann integrable. The hint says that since L (lower sum) is zero, it remai

    Matlab help

    Two related questions. First - I need a good way to display error bars on a scatter plot. I have a set of x and y data, that I have attached as a text file along with y+err and y-err data (denoted +/-). The err values vary from point to point, and +err and -err are not necessarily the same. Second - I am using the data to
