Fisher information



I have a question about the exercise 1 of serie 12. I don't really understand why the variance is the inverse of the fisher information?

Exercise set 6

I have almost done with showing the other parts, but I am struggling with the last part of the third one to deduce the relationship between beta and beta hat.

I would be grateful if anyone can give me a piece of help to make me proceed on.

Vertical projection and orthogonal projection?

The lecture note remarks that they are different, but could anyone explain about their difference exactly?

In exercise set 2

Despite the kind explanations in the answer sheet, I am not sure how to calculate the part (a) of the 4th exercise. 

Could you let me know some more detail?

In the exercise set 5

For the parts (a) and (b) in the 4th exercise of set 5, I have to describe the first p elements and the rest (n-p) elements of each fixed value \hat{\tilde{y}} and I have done computing it, but I am afraid if I do not have any idea of how to describe them.

And for the part (c), could anyone help a bit more for me to think further on?

Exercise 4 #2

For the second problem in Exercise set 4, is it right to use the table of "cement heat evolution" from the lecture slide?

I wonder why we have only three variables for x's: x1, x2, and x3. 

To be more specific, what are x's in this case?

There might be something I misunderstand, but I hope someone would be able to help me.

Regarding the problem 1(d) in Exercise Set 3

Hi, I have been solving the homework problem 1 from Exercise Set 3, but I am not sure what I am going to use to prove the last part (d).

Is everyone doing well with this?
