Highly suggested problem: Try to derive the CME, CmE, and MAP estimators

on pp. 43-44 of Hero (good practice with erf functions; you may need to do

integration by parts)

research group. He let me post his

slides and a related

short

paper

with related proofs.

Volkan did a great job; it’s

a nice distillation of some of the material in Ch. 4 of Poor. Enjoy!
