Re: A book about random variates

Hi gAr

Thanks for the link! I will have to look at this when I have time.

Hi gAr;

Sorry I missed you. Thanks for the link. How are you doing?

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.

Re: A book about random variates

I have been solving problems, but not so actively here.
I have been trying for a while the probability problem by ElainaVW, that circle.. Not getting anywhere though!

Re: A book about random variates

I also have the solution to the second part about the gaps. If I was smart enough to write it down somewhere.

Re: A book about random variates

You mean you had an analytical solution which you can't recollect now?
You have it in a program?

Re: A book about random variates

I had a formula for the probability and the expected number of gaps. I am looking for them now.

Okay, post it there if you find it, I'll keep trying. Multiple integrals is the only way I can think of now.

Hi;

Eureka! I am getting smarter the older I get. In 100 years or so I will be brilliant. I wrote it all down!

Re: A book about random variates

Yep! The worst feeling in the world is when later on I discover that I forgot to write it down in a place where I can find it.

You want me to post over there?

I put the first sum in for the probability, if you want the gap expectation, let me know.
