 Jun 13 asked Convergence to exponential function. Jun 3 accepted Scheffe’s Theorem Jun 3 comment Scheffe’s Theorem @ChrisJanjigian I see, it is $1 \le n \le \infty$. Thanks! Jun 3 comment Scheffe’s Theorem @ChrisJanjigian How do we get $\int f_\infty = 1$? Dominated convergence theorem? Jun 3 asked Scheffe’s Theorem May 31 comment Difference between $P(Y \ge y)$ and $P(Y > y)$. Thanks! Somehow I believed the sum should starts from $0$ without much thinking. May 30 accepted Difference between $P(Y \ge y)$ and $P(Y > y)$. May 30 comment Difference between $P(Y \ge y)$ and $P(Y > y)$. As for the sum, I was thinking if $>$ and $\ge$ versions of Lemma 2.2.8 is equivalent. Then we should have $\mathbb E(Y) = \int_0^\infty P (Y \ge y) \, \mathrm dy = \sum_{y \ge 0} P(Y \ge y)$, for $Y$ takes only integer values which seems to be wrong. May 30 comment Difference between $P(Y \ge y)$ and $P(Y > y)$. So actually we can replace $>$ with $\ge$ in the proof? I'm confused because latter in the book, exercise 2.2.7, a generalized version of Lemma 2.2.8 is given, with $>$ replaced by $\ge$, that's why I'm considering whether there are difference between the two. May 30 comment Difference between $P(Y \ge y)$ and $P(Y > y)$. But the integral $\int_0^\infty py^{p-1} 1_{(Y > y)} \, \mathrm dy$ should not change if we replace $>$ with $\ge$, right? This is an integral with respect to Lebesgue measure, which shouldn't change when omitting a single point. May 30 comment Difference between $P(Y \ge y)$ and $P(Y > y)$. As you pointed out in the link, the sum should start from $y \ge 1$, not $y \ge 0$.
