1. Suppose a monkey randomly and independently hits the white notes on a piano repeatedly, one at a time. The notes are {A, B, C, D, E, F, G}. [3] a) Find the expected # trials until the monkey first plays the melody “C D C D E D C D C”. Delayed renewal event with maximum overlap “C D C” So T CDCDEDCDC = T CDC + T CDCDEDCDC-bar But “C D C” is delayed renewal too with maximum overlap “C” So T CDCDEDCDC = T C + T CDC-bar + T CDCDEDCDC-bar = 7 + 7 3 + 7 9 using the Renewal Theorem = 40,353,957 [4] b) Derive the pgf F CDC (s) of the waiting time until the monkey first plays “C D C”. Delayed renewal sequence: d 0 = 0, d 1 = d 2 = 0, d n = (1/7) 3 , for n ≥ 3. Associated renewal sequence: 0 r = 1, 1 r = 0, 2 r = (1/7) 2 , n r = (1/7) 3 for n ≥ 3. So D CDC (s) = [s 3 /343]/(1 s) R CDC-bar (s) = 1 + s 2 /49 + [s 3 /343]/(1 s) = [1 s + (1 s)s 2 /49 + s 3 /343]/(1 s) So F CDC (s) = [s 3 /343]/[1 s + (1 s)s 2 /49 + s 3 /343] [3] c) Find the probability that “C D C” occurs for the first time on trial 6. (Hint: you can do this without expanding F CDC (s)) We want f 6 = P(“C D C” occurs for the first time on trial 6) We need _ _ _ C D C but not C D C C D C since in that case it has occurred first on trial 3, and not _ C D C D C, since in that case it has occurred first on trial 4. f 6 = P(“CDC” occurs on trial 6)–P(“CDC” occurs on 6 and 3)–P(“CDC” occurs on 6 and 4) = (1/7) 3 (1/7) 6 (1/7) 5 = 0.002847 [2] d) What two things are required for a delayed renewal event to occur infinitely often? The event must occur at least once with probability 1, and The associated renewal event must be recurrent (occur infinitely often)
2. A fair six- sided die is rolled repeatedly. Let λ be the event “the m inimum roll so far is 3 [3] a) Explain why λ is a renewal event by comparing T λ and T λ
