Moment generating function

1. X is uniform on {1,2,3,4,5,6} m_x(s)=? m_x(s)=E(e^sX) Which is called the moment generating function of X (or the distribution of X)


Which functions are one-to-one? Which functions are onto? Describe the inverse function A)F:Z^2-N where f is f(x,y) x^2 +2y^2 B)F:N->N where f is f(x) = x/2 (x even) x+1 (x odd) C)F:N->N where f is f(x) = x+1 (x even) x-1 (x odd) D)h:N^3 -> N where h(x,y,z) = x + y -z

Question about onto functions

Let P be the power set of {A, B} and let S be the set of all binary strings of length 2. A function f: P -> S is defined as follows: For A in P, f(A) has a 1 in the high-order bit position (left end of string) if and only if a is in A. f(A) has a 1 in the low-order bit position (right end of string) if and only if b is in A. Is

Will Meteorites Travelling on a Parabolic Path Strike the Earth?

The earth with center at the origin has equation of xsquared + ysquared =65 where x and y are distances in thousands of kilometers. Will either of these two meteorites whose equations I will give you strike the earth? The first meteorite is a parabola whose equation is 18x-ysquared = -144. Please show all steps in sketching and

Draw the Graphs for Three Equations and Find a Common Point

Using first two equations determine 3 possible points that the 2 conic sections that you get from equations meet. Add a third equation figure to out the one point that all three conic sections meet. First equation is 9(x-squared)+25(y-squared)-72x=81 Second equation is 9(x-squared)-15(y-squared)=9 Graph these two conical

Linear Models : Choosing Between Point-Slope, Slope-Intercept and Standard Forms

Find an example, of the BMI between man/woman and estimate a best fit line graphically. Develop an approximate linear model using the point slope form, the slope-intercept form or the standard form line. You are not to graph the line here but help illustrate your point . You are only required to use the line of the forms to iden

Brouwer's Fixed Point Theorem

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems. Prove that if D is the closed disc |x| =< 1 in R2, then any map f E C2[D --> D] has a fixed point: f(x) = x. The proof is by contradiction, and uses Stokes theorem. Follow the steps outlined below. (1) Define a new map F(x) = ... ..... Show that F has no fixe

Spanning Tree Graph : Movie Collaboration (Kevin Bacon Game)

If you were required by a professor to find a spanning tree of the movie collaboration graph (where each node corresponds to an actor with finite Kevin Bacon number, and two nodes are connected by an edge if the corresponding actors have been in a movie together), how would you do it? Why would you choose your method over other

Spanning Trees and Graphs

Does every graph have a spanning tree? If not, then can you tell from the number of nodes and the number of edges a graph has whether it has a spanning tree, or do you need more information?
