A distribution is a mathematical description of probabilities or frequencies.

It is customary, in the case of self-study questions, to provide a hint on how to solve the problem. I will therefore do that but refrain from giving the full answer. If you are still stuck, there is …

Yes. Your setting can be described with the following graphical model: $$\phi \rightarrow \theta \rightarrow X$$ This means that $X$ is conditionally independent of $\phi$ given $\theta$. Some bas …

$$X \sim Y\times \mbox{Poisson}(\lambda)$$ where $Y$ follows a Rademacher distribution (i.e. $Y$ is $1$ with probability $\frac{1}{2}$ and $-1$ with probability $\frac{1}{2}$).

$f_{\mathbf x}(x)$ is the density of $x$, which in the case of a continuous uniform distribution in the interval $(a,b]$ is $f_{\mathbf x}(x)=\frac{1}{b-a}$ for all $x \in (a,b]$, 0 elsewhere.

Expanding on chRrr 's comment: Let us assume that $X$ is continuous and $g$ is increasing. Let us say that $g$ is of the form $g:S \rightarrow T$. Let us define  V=\{y\in T ~|~ \exists x \in S ~ …
