Waiting for the K-th consecutive success and the Fibonacci sequence of order K Andreas N. Philippou, A. A. Muwafi Published 1982 In the sequel, k is a fixed integer greater than or equal to 2, and n is an integer as specified. Let Nk be a random variable denoting the number of trials until the occurrence of the kth consecutive success in independent trials with constant success probability p (0 < p < 1). Shane [6] and Turner [7] considered the problem of obtaining the distribution of Nk. The… CONTINUE READING
