I see.
For now, simulations for me too.

Your formula does look interesting though and I will play with it. Who knows, I might get lucky.

Re: Is this cool with you?

Here's a joint distribution formula for four consecutive terms:

l_a : no. of cards less than a
s_b : number of cards selected having face value of b
nh : no. of positions available after placing the given 4 numbers

E.g.

Suppose we wanted to know the probability of sorted order to be 5 6 7 8, starting from 4th position:
We take the variables as:

5 5 5 8:

5 5 5 5: change s_d to s_a in the formula and

Hi gAr;

I was busy doing some chores so I could not get to it till now. I will try it on some problems.

They claimed that the books were used for the writing of the probability routines in Maple. I got little out of them so far.

Hi gAr;

Suppose we wanted to know the probability of sorted order to be 5 6 7 8, starting from 4th position:

Does this mean x x x x 5 6 7 8, where x are cards?

Re: Is this cool with you?

Hi gAr;

For your first example of 5,6,7,8 ( x x x 5 6 7 8 x ) I am getting a simulation answer about 1 / 10 th as large as predicted. What are you getting?

Hi,

My simulation answer is close: 0.0056

Re: Is this cool with you?

That is very close to what I am getting with a simulation too. But the formula is not giving that answer. I will check that I have not made some error.

Okay, first problem checks out. On to the second one.

I finally got the same answer you did. Then I had connection problems for 5 hours finally got back online.

The third example checks out! Ooooba oooba oooba, oooga ooog ooga! That means Wunderbar!

Forgive me, please, for taking this thread all the way back to the beginning, and also if someone else has pointed this out in those thousands of posts I have despaired of hunting through to check:

Re: Is this cool with you?

Hi;

Did you see post #9 in this same thread?

Scientia and JFF are well grounded in questions like these.

Their complaint starts right here:

Courtesy of Wikipedia:

If f is a real-valued (or complex-valued) function, then taking the limit is compatible with the algebraic operations, provided the limits on the right sides of the equations below exist (the last identity only holds if the denominator is non-zero). This fact is often called the algebraic limit theorem.
