Exercise 1.20 
geyser is in the MASS package
(see page 14). Use MASS::geyser to access this data
set. 

285  last line  printed: \(2n\pi\)
correct: \(n\pi\) 
286  lines 910  printed: correct when \(\pi_0 = 0\) but overestimates … when \(\pi_0 > 0\) correct: correct when \(\pi_0 = 1/2\) but overestimates … when \(\pi_0 \neq 1/2\) 
331  The problem could be clarified to indicate that the first moment is not useful. The second moment could be used.  
373  printed: \(W = 2
\log\left(\frac{L(\theta_0)}{L(\hat\theta)} \right) = 2 \left(\log(\hat
\theta)  \log(\theta_0)\right) \approx I(\hat \theta) (\theta_0 
\hat\theta)^2\) correct: \(W = 2 \log\left( \frac{L(\theta_0)}{L(\hat\theta)} \right) = 2 \left(l(\hat \theta)  l(\theta_0)\right) \approx I(\hat \theta) (\theta_0  \hat\theta)^2\)

747  Exercise A.11  Unfortunately, the weatherData package has
been removed from CRAN. Similar data now live in
mosaicData::Weather , but the data for several cities are
already contained in a single data frame, so there is no need to merge
from multiple sources.
