A new proof that the product of three or more exponential random variables is moment-indeterminate
AbstractWe present a direct, short and transparent proof of the following result:Â The product X1...Xn of independent exponential random variables X1,...,Xn is moment-indeterminate if and only if n>=3. This and other complex analytic results concerning Stieltjes moment sequences and properties of the corresponding distributions appeared recently in Berg (2005).
