 Author Comment/Response Tom 09/10/09 8:36pm Hi, I have a monte-carlo simulation of people randomly clicking on web sites that returns the numbers of clicks per site: monteCarlo[numSites_, numClicks_] := Module[{sites}, sites = ConstantArray[0, numSites]; Do[sites[[Random[Integer, {1, numSites}]]]++, {numClicks}]; SortBy[Tally@sites, -#[[1]] &] ] How can I come up with an equation to simulate the results of this? When numClicks/numSites is large, the data follows a normal distribution, but when numClicks/numSites approaches 0, this gets more and more inaccurate.
