Default Krzys' Ostaszewski's Problem for March 19, 2005

I have posted an exercise for March 19 at:
http://www.math.ilstu.edu/krzysio/3-...ialOutpost.pdf
This includes the exercise for March 12, with the solution I propose. By the way, let me note for those possibly interested that the multivariate normal distribution is on the Exam P, even though this topic was not on Course 1 examination. I have verified this with the SOA. The problem I am posting is not specific to that distribution, but you might want to remember that it is time to review the multivariate normal distribution's properties.

Yours,
Krzys' Ostaszewski

Default Exercise for April 30

This one is pretty challenging, and it covers topics that the dumbed-down classes skip, and since I intend to teach everything that is on the test, I will give you a chance to chew on it, so I am posting it first without a solution:
http://www.math.ilstu.edu/krzysio/4-...O-Exercise.pdf
Enjoy!

Yours,
Krzys'
