Unformatted text preview: s expression for the hypothetical pattern in Fig.2(ii)a we obtain the following results: Enumeration of the binomial coefficient for this problem gives the result we obtained by experimentation Further evaluation of the binomial distribution for values of m between 2 and r leads to a discrete probability distribution which describes the probability of finding m points in the specified cell when the pattern of points evolved under a random, or independent, process. Table 1 lists these values the predicted number of cells containing m points for the whole pattern. This final calculation provides a random frequency array which can be comlisted in Table 1. (iii) The binomial distribution Subsequently we shall find that two useful summary measures of the preof placing a single point in a specified cell, and r, the total number of points, such that expected, or mean value of m is given by We can now combine the ideas incorporated in the multiplication axiom and binomial coefficients to obtain the distribution that predicts the random frequency array. We require an answer to this question, if r points are placed ind...
