Random breakage of a rod into unit lengths
In this article we consider the random breakage of a rod into L unit elements and present a Markov chain based method that tracks intermediate breakage configurations. The probability of the time to final breakage for L = 3, 4, 5 is obtained and the method is shown to extend in principle, beyond L = 5.
