Serkan Eryilmaz: Generalized geometric distributions with reliability applications

12:00am, CM221

The distribution of the number of trials until the first k consecutive successes in a sequence of Bernoulli trials with success probability p is known as geometric distribution of order k. When k=1, the distribution is the usual geometric distribution. In this talk, distributional properties of the geometric distribution of order k and its generalization called geometric distribution of order k with a reward will be presented. Applications of these distributions in some engineering reliability problems will also be mentioned.
