I'd like to plot the probability distribution for a set of binomial trials in R, the catch is that each trial has an independent probability of success (which I have in vector form). So, in R if I ...
In an M/M/1 queue, we know that inter-arrival times are exponentially distributed, and that service times are the same. What is the distribution of to-server inter-arrival times (aka service start ...
Consider iid samples from a fixed distribution function $F(x)$ and consider its median. Now consider another median from iid samples where one half is drawn from $F_1(x)$ and the other is drawn from ...
I was looking over the solution to this question on SO and it got me thinking about computing probabilities for a Gaussian mixture model. Let's assume you've fit some Gaussian mixture model so that ...
Here's something I've wondered about for a while, but haven't been able to discover the correct terminology. Say you have a relatively complicated density function that you suspect might have a close ...
