Statistics Seminars: "Moment Problems in Probability and Statistics "
1 December 2000 14:00 in CM221
"We consider distributions on the real line with finite moments of all orders. The classical moment problem (Chebyshev, Markov, Stieltjes,...) is to answer the question: Does the moment sequence determine uniquely the distribution? Our discussion will be on criteria for uniqueness and criteria for non-uniqueness. New results, as well as new proofs of old results will be presented. Several interesting implications will be given for popular distributions (normal, exponential, gamma, log-normal, IG, etc) widely used in Probability, Statistics and their applications. "
