estimate normal distribution parameters by $n$ largest samples

If I have the $n$ largest out of $m$ values of a sample from independent normal distributed random variables $\mathbb{X}_1,\dots,\mathbb{X}_m\sim\mathcal{N}(\mu,\sigma)$ with unknown parameters ...

Let $ X_1,X_2,…,X_n$ be i.i.d. $N(\theta_1, \theta_2)$, please prove that $E[(X_1-\theta_1)^4] = 3\theta_2^2$

If $X_{1}$, $X_{2}$, ..., $X_{n}$ is sampled from $N(\theta_1, \theta_2)$, how can I prove that $E [(X_{1} - \theta_1)^{4}] = 3 \theta_2^{2}$? I started off this question finding the completely ...

Multi-dimensional MLE Guassian

I wonder that what is the mu and sigma formula MLE(maximum likelihood estimates) for a 3 dimension guassian ? It is the same form as 1 and 2 dimension (+ 1 mu and sigma for the new vector) ?

Sample estimated normal distribution - what will be the expected effect of another sample?

Assume I already have n samples of a 2D variable. I can compute the sample mean and variance. If I assume that the samples are taken from a normal distribution, then using the mean and variance I get ...
