Random-Allocation and Urn Models
We review some urn and random-allocation models, mostly using probability generating function (PGF) methods. We begin by formulating a basic problem which can be thought of as either an urn or a random-allocation model; a PGF solution to it is outlined. When the compartments in the latter model are no longer homogeneous, the multivariate PGF can still be derived, though the algebra becomes cumbersome. Some results are given for the case where there are two types of compartment and for the case...[Show more]
