Re: A book about random variates

Thanks, that's a neat formula!
Knowing expectation will also be nice, so yes please!

Re: A book about random variates

Hi;

I will edit the post and add it. Hold on.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Okay, he used a small L in the formula that looks like a one in some spots. It will take me some time to clean up his bad notation. See you tomorrow.
