The stuttering generalized waring distribution


  • Panaretos, John
  • Xekalaki, Evdokia


The stuttering generalized Waring distribution is introduced and shown to arise through two urn genesis schemes. Its probability generating function and moments are derived and some potential applications are discussed.
