Breaking a rod into unit lengths along a given path

Gani, Joseph; Swift, R.J.

Description

We consider the probability of the time T until a rod of length L is broken up into unit lengths along a given path, when the permutations of the broken parts are taken into account. The inductive method is shown to work for L = 3,4, 5. This note extends
