Solution: 2019-09 Discrete entropy

Suppose that \( X \) is a discrete random variable on the set \( \{ a_1, a_2, \dots \} \) with \( P(X=a_i) = p_i \). Define the discrete entropy
\[
H(X) = -\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} p_i \log p_i.
\]
Find constants \( C_1, C_2 \geq 0 \) such that
\[
e^{2H(X)} \leq C_1 Var(X) + C_2
\]
holds for any \( X \).

Solution: 2018-22 Two monic quadratic polynomials

Let \(f_1(x)=x^2+a_1x+b_1\) and \(f_2(x)=x^2+a_2x+b_2\) be polynomials with real coefficients. Prove or disprove that the following are equivalent.

(i) There exist two positive reals \(c_1, c_2\) such that \[ c_1f_1(x)+ c_2 f_2(x) > 0\] for all reals \(x\).

(ii) There  is no real \(x\) such that \( f_1(x)\le 0\) and \( f_2(x)\le 0\).
