Hello, I have to define a sequence recursively with the binomial distribution in the following way : X[[n+1]]=X[[n]]+Random[BinomialDistribution[X[[n]],p[[n]]], n ranging from 1 to some N The first terms of the sequence are well constructed with Mathematica but as X[[n]] grows, I had the message Internal counter overflow. Some expression evaluations may not run to their final fixed points. Try redoing your computation on a 64-bit enhanced version of Mathematica. Could you tell me how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance, Nadia
