Let X follow log-normal with parameters µ and σ 2. Find the distribution of Y = aX b, a > 0, -∞ < b < ∞

Explanation

If X follow log-normal with parameters µ and σ 2, then Z = logX follow normal distribution.

First find the cdf of Y

Describe in Detail

Suppose that the random variable X has a normal distribution with mean µ and variance σ 2. Let φ be the distribution function of a standard normal variate. Find the density of φ (X-µ/σ). Also find E [φ (X-µ/σ) ].

Explanation

X has a normal distribution with mean µ and variance σ 2

Let

Describe in Detail

Prove that for r = 1,2, …, n

Explanation

We known that the L. H. S. is an incomplete gamma function and R. H. S. is a cumulative density function of Poisson distribution.

The incomplete gamma function is

Then

provided that r is an integer. Thus recall that Γ (r) = (r −1)! for r integer.
