## find the moment generating function of Z and use it to find the first six moments of Z.

(Auxiliary Functions and Moments). For a random variable X, the characteristic function E(eitX) always exists since eitX is a bounded random variable (with complex values). The moment generating function E(etx) only exists if X has moments of all orders and those moments do not grow too fast.

a)      If Z is Gaussian with mean 0 and variance 1, find the moment generating function of Z and use it to find the first six moments of Z. In particular, show that E(Z4) = 3, a fact that we will need later. [Hint: Series expansion can be easier than differentiation.]

b)      If W = Z4 , then W has moments of all orders, since Z has all moments. Show nevertheless that W does not have a moment generating function.
