about this item

This book is devoted to the study of discrete q-distributions defined on the stochastic model of a sequence of independent Bernoulli trials.  The mathematical prerequisites are modest, and the author introduces the necessary basic q-sequences and q-functions in an effort to make the book self-contained.  Chapter 1 introduces the notions of a q-power, a q-factorial, and a q-binomial coefficient of a real number.  Chapter 2 addresses discrete q-distributions with success probability at a trial varying geometrically with the number of previous trials.  Chapter 3 is devoted to the study of discrete q-distributions with success probability varying geometrically with the number of previous successes.  In Chapter 4, a stochastic model of a sequence of independent Bernoulli trials with success probability varying geometrically both with the number of trials and the number of successes in a specific manner is discussed.  A collection of exercises that vary in levels of fiddiculty is provided at the end of each chapter.  In addition, hints and answers to the exercises are included in an appendix.
