Question: a suppose that xi x2 are independent and identically distributed...

Question details

(a) Suppose that Xi, X2,... are independent and identically distributed random variables each taking the value 1 with probability p and the value-1 with probability 1-p For n 1,2,..., define Yn -X1 + X2+ ...+Xn. Is {Yn) a Markov chain? If so, write down its state space and transition probability matrix. (b) Let Xı, X2, ues on [0,1,2,...) with probabilities pi-P(X5 Yn - min(X1, X2,.. .,Xn). Is {Yn) a Markov chain and transition probability matrix. be independent and identically distributed random variables taking val For n-1,2,..., define , 2, . .., define ! If SO, write down its state space orn=1
