Probabilistic analysis and further uses of indicator random variables in Design and analysis of algorithms free notes
Probabilistic analysis and further uses of indicator random variables: This advanced section further illustrates probabilistic analysis by way of four examples. The first determines the probability that in a room of k people, some pair shares the same birthday. The second example examines the random tossing of balls into bins. The third investigates "streaks" of consecutive heads in coin flipping. The final example analyzes a variant of the hiring problem in which you have to make decisions without actually interviewing all the candidates.
