When grading homeworks for my Monte Carlo graduate class, I found that my students had pointed out two typos in the exercises of Chapter 2 of “Introducing Monte Carlo Methods with R”.

– In Exercise 2.17, question d. should be “d. Show that the maximum of b^{-a}(1-b)^{a-alpha} is attained at b=a/alpha.

– In Exercise 2.21, in item (ii), ||theta|| should be replaced by sqrt{lambda} and question b. should be removed.

I am currently working on the solution manual. It should have been ready when the book came out (if only because it is an efficient way to chase typos down), but I lazily waited for those homeworks to be handed back to reduce my workload… So keep posted for further typos in Chapters 3, 6 and 7, since my students only covered those chapters.
