 Author Comment/Response endriuu 05/30/12 2:43pm I've a problem. I want generate a set of number according Yule - Simon Distribution. For example: I've got a set of number: A={1,2,3,4,5} I want to add new element to the list with probability than I chose: 1 with 1/6 2 with 1/6 3 with 1/6 4 with 1/6 5 with 1/6 6 (new element from oudside) with 1/6. Assume that I've choosen 2. Then I've got a the list A={1,2,2,3,4,5}. Now, I`ve got a new set A, and go repeat: A={1,2,2,3,4,5} I want to add new element to the list with probability than I chose: 1 with 1/7 2 with 2/7 3 with 1/7 4 with 1/7 5 with 1/7 6 (new element from oudside) with 1/7. Assume that I've choosen 6. Then I've got a the list A={1,2,2,3,4,5,6}. Now, I`ve got a new set A, and go repeat: A={1,2,2,3,4,5,6} I want to add new element to the list with probability than I chose: 1 with 1/8 2 with 2/8 3 with 1/8 4 with 1/8 5 with 1/8 6 with 1/8 7 with (new element from oudside) with 1/8.
