Homework questions for STA 2211F (Spring, 1998)

All homework questions are taken from the textbook, "Probability and Measure", 3rd ed., by Patrick Billingsley. (The questions are found at the end of the corresponding section; for example, question 2.4 is the fourth question at the end of section 2.) Note that some questions have hints provided, on pages 552-580 of the text.

These questions are tentative, and modifications may be announced during lectures. Students may discuss solutions to the homework questions, especially when they are stuck, but they should understand them and write them up entirely on their own. Direct copying is strictly forbidden!

Each homework is due by 4:00 p.m. on the day indicated, and should be placed in my mailbox (in Sid Smith 6021) or slid under my office door (Sid Smith 6024) by that time. Extensions will be considered, but only when discussed well in advance.
