On Some Distributions Arising from Certain Generalized Sampling Schemes


Author Info

  • Xekalaki, Evdokia


With the notion of success in a series of trials extended to refer to a run of like outcomes, several new distributions are obtained as the result of sampling from an urn without replacement or with additional replacements. In this context, the hypergeometric, negative hypergeometric, logarithmic series, generalized Waring, Polya and inverse Polya distributions are extended and their properties are studied
