This paper proposes test statistics for the comparison of two binomial parameters that come from related samples in the situation just described, that is, in a series of Bernoulli trials that are split into two subsets at the occurrence of the first success in the sequence so that one of the binomial parameters is estimated under negative binomial sampling whereas the other is estimated under binomial sampling.
Consider a fixed number R of replicates of a truncated geometric experiment, each replicate r (1 [less than or equal to] r [less than or equal to] R) consisting of a maximum of T - 1 Bernoulli trials (with success probability [p.
It is fairly easy to derive the mean and variance of the binomial distribution because we can depict Bernoulli trials in several ways.
For describing discrete random variables associated with experiments, an important notion is that of Bernoulli trials.
Bernoulli trials Trials that involve random processes for which there are only two possible outcomes that occur without any fixed pattern, and the probability of either outcome remains fixed for each trial.
