Pointwise Operations and Characteristic Functions

Let U be a set, suppose f, g : U --> R are functions from U to the set of real numbers R, and Let a E R. Then f + g, fg. af: U --> R are defined by (f + g)(x) = f(x) + g(x), (fg)(x) = f(x)g(x) (af)(x) = a(f(x)) for all x E R. If a E R by abuse of notation we regard a as the constant function from U to R defined by a(x) =

What is the expected yield on notes from year 1 to 2, assuming the PEH holds? If inflation for the next year is expected to be 4.5%, what would the expected real rate of interest be on the 3-month T-bill? Plot the yield curve for these Treasury securities. Using the three theories we have discussed, explain how each one helps explain the shape of this yield curve.

1. If U.S. Treasury yields are as follows: 3 month 6.0% 6 month 6.3% 1 year 6.5% 2 year 6.6% 5 year 6.4% 10 year 7.5% 30 year 8.0% a. What is the expected yield on notes from year 1 to 2, assuming the PEH holds? b. What is the expected yield on notes from year 2 to 5, assuming th

Parabola and tangent lines

The parabola y= x^2+4 has two tangents which pass through the point (0,-2). One is tangent to the parabola at (a, a^2+4) and the other at (-a, a^2+4) where a is a certain positive number. The question is a=?

Solve Finite Difference Equation

See attached file for full problem description with equation. --- Find analytically the solution of this difference equation with the given initial values: Without computing the solution recursively, predict whether such a computation would be stable. (Note: A numerical process is unstable if small errors made at one

Fashion Plotting

A new fashion in clothes is introduced. It spreads slowly through the population at first but then speeds up as more people become aware of it. Eventually those willing to try the new fashions begin to dry up and while the number of people adopting the fashion continues to increase. It does so at a decreasing rate. Later the fas

Evaluate graphs of derivative functions

(a) Suppose the graph in Figure 4.1.78 is that of a function g(x). Sketch the graph of the derivative g; (b) On the other hand, suppose the graph above is that of the derivative of a function f. For the interval ..., tell where the function f is (i) increasing; (ii) decreasing. (iii) Tell whether f has any extrema, and if so

Find Domain, Graph, Height, Minimum Surface Area of a Box

Consider an open-top box with a square base and a volume of 108 cubic inches. Let x be the length of a side of the base. a) Calculate the height h as a function of x. Is this function even, odd, or neither? b) What is the domain of the function above? (Note that there may be physical and/or mathematical restrictions.)

Uniform Convergence of a Sequence of Functions

Prove the following theorem. Let f1,f2,f3.... be continuous functions on a closed bounded interval [a,b] . Then fn--->f uniformly on [a,b] if and only if fn(x)-->f(x) for every xn-->x such that xn,x E[a,b] . Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems.

Functions, Roots, Convergence, Fixed Point Method

Consider the function f(x) = 2sinx + e^-x - 1 on the interval r E [?2,2]. If you plot the function, you will see that it has two roots on this interval (a) Write down a first order fixed point method for finding one of the two roots. (b) Will this fixed point method converge for both of the roots (Justify)? If it does not co

Proof of Uniform Continuity

Show that the function f(x) = √x is uniformly continuous on [0,∞). Note: This is from a beginning analysis class. We can only use the definition of uniform continuity. (In other words, cannot use compactness, etc to prove) ---
