Homework for STA 2211S (Spring, 1997)
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 8.21 is the twenty-first question at the end of section
8.) Note that some questions have hints provided, on pages 552-580 of
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 6018) or slid under my office door
(Sid Smith 6011) by that time. Extensions will be considered, but only
when discussed well in advance.
