Introduction Let us change our traditional attitude to the construction of programs: Instead of imagining that our main task is to instruct a computer what to do, let us concentrate rather on explaining to humans what we want the computer to do. In essence, this is the purpose of literate programming (LP for short). Such an environment reverses the notion(More)
In this short note, we establish the uniform integrability and pointwise convergence of an (unbounded) family of polynomials on the unit interval that arises in work on statistical density estimation using Bernstein polynomials. These results are proved by first establishing/generalizing some combinatorial and probability inequalities that rely on a new(More)

With the advent of quality improvement and outcome measurement imperatives, providers of healthcare services must fully understand the importance of the human and clinical processes that lead to positive patient encounters. To that end, this article proposes that parallel qualities exist between behavioral need theory and the clinical hierarchy of patient(More)
Empirical testing of computer generated pseudo-random sequences is widely practiced. Extensions to the <italic>coupon collector's</italic> and <italic>gap</italic> tests are presented that examine the distribution and independence of radix-<italic>b</italic> digit patterns in sequences with modulo of the form <italic>b<supscrpt>w</supscrpt></italic>.
