### Distribution of a two-part sampling process

I have a known distribution $f(x)$ (in fact, I can safely assume that $f(x)$ is the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, i.e. $f(x)\propto x^2 \exp(-x^2)$). I take $N$ samples from the distribution, but am ...

### Derivative at a fixed point

Let $k \geq 2$ be a positive integer and $m \in \{0,1,2,\dots,k-1\}.$ Fix $k$ and $m.$ Let $X$ be a binomial distribution with parameters $k$ and $p.$ Define the function $f:[0,1] \rightarrow [0,1]$ ...

### CDF's of Two Binomial Distributions with the Same Mean and Different Probabilities

Suppose we have two binomial random variables $X_i \sim B(\frac{a}{p_i},p_i)$ and $X_j \sim B(\frac{a}{p_j},p_j)$, where $a$ is a positive integer, and both $\frac{a}{p_i}$ and $\frac{a}{p_j}$ are ...

### A conjecture on 'truncated joint moments' of binomial coefficients under binomial distribution

This is similar in spirit to Sum of squares of middle binomial sums or 'Truncated mean' of binomial coefficients under binomial distribution but gives some total estimates. Though the other ...

### Sum of squares of middle binomial sums or 'Truncated mean' of binomial coefficients under binomial distribution

$\mu=1+\epsilon$ where $\epsilon>0$ holds. 1.Is there a good bound for $$T=\frac{\sum_{i=-\sqrt{\mu n\ln n}}^{\sqrt{\mu n\ln n}}\binom{n}{\frac n2 +i}^2}{2^n}?$$ This quantity can be ...

### Properties of a function based on binomial distribution

$f_{n,p}(k)$ is the probability mass function of a binomial distribution with parameters $n$ and $p$ i.e, for $k \in \{0,1,2, \cdots,n\}$, $f_{n,p}(k) = \binom{n}{k}p^k(1-p)^{n-k}$. Let $F_{n,p}$ be ...

### Proving an inequation based on binomial distributions

Problem statement Let $c \in \mathbb{N}$, $n_1 \in \mathbb{N}_0$, and $n_2 \in \mathbb{N}_0$ be integers and $p$ a probability. Furthermore, let $b(m,j,p) = \binom{m}{j}p^j(1-p)^{m-j}$ denote the ...

### Importance sampling for bernoulli-sequence, favouring long sequences of ones

Assume we have a sequence of i.i.d. bernoulli-distributed random variables of length $n$. I'm interested in doing rare event simulation and my event depends, among other random factors, on the ...

### Quotient of cumulative binomial distribution functions

Given to integers $n < m \in \mathbb{N}_0$ and a probability $p$, I'm struggling to calculate (or at least get an upper bound for) the quotient $$Q = \frac{F(n+1;m,p)}{F(n;m,p)}$$ where $F$ denotes ...
