Hi gAr;

I completed the problem. I think you will like the solution.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Hi bobbym,

Yes, I'd like to see the solution!

Hi gAr;

Thanks! What edition do you have? I got the matrix method to work!

Hi,

It's third edition.
That's nice! How's the matrix form, can we get asymptotic form directly?

Hi;

I do not think so it just gets a formula for x(n) in a slightly simpler form.

Okay.
Maybe complex analysis is the only way to deal with asymptotics.

There are methods like Darboux but I never could understand it. I use complex analysis.

Hi bobbym,

Thanks!
I found a thesis which deals with asymptotics, looks interesting: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/su … 1.131.2041

Hi bobbym,

Yes, there's a lot of information in it.

What you suggest is right, thanks. But the recurrence in that post is also correct, I think. See you later.

Hi bobbym,

Now I understand, you were writing the recurrence from the g.f. I thought that was a correction!
See you a bit later.

New problem:

A biased coin is to be flipped a certain number of times. The probability of heads is .4 If the coin is repeatedly flipped what is the probability of 15 heads in a row before 15 tails in a row occur?

A says) (.4)^15 * (.6)^15
B says) That is not right I am getting .003412
C says) All the way with A, baby!
D says) A is the man!
E says) A is incorrect.

I think that this isn't correct, but I just thought that I should share what I got just so I could find out what I did wrong.
