### Fitting a model to a collection of binomial proportions, based on varying (large) sample sizes.

I have a multi-parameter bivariate function, say $f(i,j)$ that I want to use to predict the entries of a matrix $M(i,j)$, the entries of which are binomial probabilities based on varying sample sizes, ...

### Maximum Likelihood Estimation with 2 parameters for a Poisson distribution

I have two observations from a Poisson distribution. The first one ($N_r$) come with a Poisson distribution with mean $k_1$. For the second one ($N_e$) I know that $N_e - M$ also come from the same ...

### Estimation, Upper limits, Lower limits

Two rods of length 2.6 cm and 3.5 cm are measured correct to the nearest 0.2 cm. The two rod are joined together, find the lower and upper limit of the new rod. I get stuck. HOw to do?

I’m stuck on the following problem. There are two sources $S_A$ and $S_B$ at the ends of a channel. Both are made up of a white noise component $W_i$ plus an impulsive component $I_i$: $S_A = W_A + ... 1answer 13 views ### derivation of$\theta(x)=\int_{a}^{x}\varphi (y)dy - (\int_{a}^{b}\varphi(y)dy)\psi(x)$and °L^2$-norm estimation

Let $I=(a,b)$, $u\in L^2(I)$ and $\psi\in C^{\infty}(I)$ such that $\psi=0$ on $(a,a+\epsilon)$ and $\psi=1$ on $(b-\epsilon , b)$ for sufficient small $\epsilon$. Let $\varphi\in C_C^\infty (I)$ and ...

### Estimate parameters of a quadratic function

Suppose that we have two data points which tell us about the output of some function $f(x)$: $(0, 50)$ $(10, 150)$ We know that the function is quadratic (so it's something like $ax^2 + bx + c$). ...

### Saturating space so that at least two lines are close enough

All lines in what follows pass through the origin. The only reason for the angle $2\pi/3$ below is that this is how I began wondering about these questions. Picture the unit disc $S^2$, by which I ...

### Why integral is equal to zero

I wonder why under assumption that w>>$\frac{1}{T}$ then $\int_{0}^{T} sin(wt)dt$ is approximately zero? Since the integral should be like- $\frac{cos(wt)}{w}$ from $0$ to $T$ and after plugging the ...

### How to estimate numbers like $(19/20)^{30}$

Is it possible to estimate by hand what is the value of expresion like $(19/20)^{30}$? $$19/20 = 0.95$$ but $$(19/20)^{30} \approx 0.2146$$ So it is totally different number.
