1. Compute a Monte Carlo estimate of

Compare your estimate with the exact value of the integral.

1. We will estimate ω of

using two different approaches:

• Compute a Monte Carlo estimate (ˆω) of ω by sampling from Uniform(0, 0.5), and estimate the variance of ˆω.
• Compute a Monte Carlo estimate (ω) of ω by sampling from the exponential distribution, and estimate the variance of ω.
• Compare the two variances. Which one is smaller?
1. Write a function to compute a Monte Carlo estimate of the Beta(a,b) cdf, F(x)
• by sampling from Uniform(0,x) (name this function pbeta1)
• by sampling from U Gamma(a,1) and V Gamma(b,1) and using the result that Y = U/(U + V ) ∼ Beta(a,b) (name this function pbeta2)
• Use pbeta1 and my.pbeta2 to estimate F(x) of Beta(3,3) for x = 0.1,0.2,…,0.9. Compare the estimates with the values returned by the pbeta function in R.
2. (a) Generate X1,…,X20 from N(0,1). Consider testing H0 : µ = 0 vs Ha : µ 6= 0. Compute the p-value from (1) one sample t-test and (2) exact wilcoxon signed rank test. Repeat this process 1000 times. Estimate the empirical Type I error for both tests at α = 0. (Hint: Empirical Type I error is the proportion of wrongly rejected null hypothesis).

(b) Now generate X1,…,X20 from N(0.5,1). Consider testing H0 : µ = 0 vs Ha : µ 6= 0. Compute the p-value from (1) one sample t-test and (2) exact wilcoxon signed rank test. Repeat this process 1000 times. Estimate the empirical power for both tests at α = 0.05.

1. (a) Generate X1,…,Xn from N(0,1) and Y1,…,Yn from N(0.5,1.5). Consider testing H0 : µX µY = 0 vs Ha : µX µY 6= 0. Compute the p-value from two sample t-test. Repeat this process 1000 times. Estimate the empirical power for this test at α = 0.05 for n = 10,20,30,…,100. Based on your plot, what is the minimum sample size to achieve power > 80%.

(b) Edit: You do not need to show how the formula is derived. An approximate sample size formula for comparing two population means using z-test for the hypothesis in (a) is

Compare your results in (a) to this sample size formula.
