Exercise 1. The random variable ξ has Poisson distribution with the parameter λ. If ξ = k

we perform k Bernoulli trials with the probability of success p. Let us define the random

variable η as the number of successful outcomes of Bernoulli trials. Prove that η has Poisson

distribution with the parameter pλ.

Solution . By definition η =

{bi = 1} where bi ∼ Ber(p) and ξ ∼ P oi(λ). Then

It follows that η is Poisson-distributed with parameter pλ.

Exercise 2. A strict reviewer needs t1 minutes to check assigned application to DeepBayes

summer school, where t1 has normal distribution with parameters µ1 = 30, σ1 = 10. While a

kind reviewer needs t2 minutes to check an application, where t2 has normal distribution with

parameters µ2 = 20, σ2 = 5. For each application the reviewer is randomly selected with 0.5

probability. Given that the time of review t = 10, calculate the conditional probability that

the application was checked by a kind reviewer.

Solution . It is given that p(r=strict) = p(r=kind) = 0.5, p(t|r = strict) ∼ N (30, 10) and

p(t|r = kind) ∼ N (20, 5).

p(t = 10, r = kind)

p(t = 10)

p(t = 10|r = kind)p(r = kind)

=

p(t = 10|r = kind)p(r = kind) + p(t = 10|r = strict)p(r = strict)

p(t = 10|r = kind)

=

p(t = 10|r = kind) + p(t = 10|r = strict)

p(r = kind|t = 10) =

When calculating normal pdf densities, in both cases

p(r = kind|t = 10) =

It follows that the probability the application was reviewed by kind reviewer is 23 .
