In this manuscript, the dual relationship between the probability of number of runs and patterns and the probability of waiting time of runs and patterns in a sequence of multistate trials has been studied via double generating functions and recursive equations. The results, which are established under different assumptions on patterns, underlying sequences and counting schemes, are extensions of Koutras’s results (1997, Advances in Combinatorial Methods and Applications to Probability and… CONTINUE READING
