A Probability Distribution Associated With Events With Multiple Occurrences
Evdokia Xekalaki MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
The paper discusses extensions of the well-known hypergeometric and negative hypergeometric distributions for describing data with multiple counts. The derivation of these extensions is based on certain urn schemes that allow for sampling clusters of items rather than individual items. The obtained distributions are then examined with respect to their properties, interrelations as well as relations to other existing distributions
