### Describe in Detail

Compute the factorial moments µ (r) and the cumulants k r, r = 1, 2, …. . , of Poisson distribution with parameter m.

### Explanation

Let X follows Poisson distribution with parameter m. The density function is

The r th factorial moment of Poisson distribution is

The cumulants of Poisson distribution is

we known that the moment generating function of X is

So, the cumulants is… (26 more words) …

### Describe in Detail

X 1, X 2, …, X N are independently, identically distributed random variables. Define S N = X 1 + X 2 + … + X N , where N is a random variable independent of X i, i = 1, 2, … N.

Show that the moment generating function (mgt) of S N is

where My (t) is the mgf of a random variable Y. Hence find the mgf of S N when N follows a Poisson distribution with parameter λ. and X i follows an exponential distribution with mean parameter θ, i = 1 to N.

### Explanation

The moment generating function of S N is where S N =X 1 +X 2 +…+X N, X i are i. i. d random variable and N is also a random variable.

X i ’s are independent identically distributed, so

In the… (50 more words) …

### Describe in Detail

Show that the sum of two independent Poisson random variables with parameters λ and µ respectively is a Poisson random variable with parameter λ+µ.

### Explanation

Let X and Y are independent Poisson random variables with parameters λ and µ respectively. We proof this by moment generating function. The moment generating function of Poisson distribution is

So, the sum of X and Y moment generating function is

because X and Y are independent
