 Author Comment/Response mouse@work 09/23/01 11:03am Hi, I'm quite a novice with Mathematica, hence you will find my problem (hopefully) rather trivial: How can conduct a simple random experiment in Mathematica, when I know the distribution? For instance, possible realisations are 1,2,3 with possibilites of each being picked 1/2,1/3,1/6, respectively. So, I want to tell the computer: "Select one of these realizations, such that when repeated infinitely, the portion of occurences of either realization converges to its respective probability" Sounds easy, doesn't it? ;-) Thanks in advance! mouse URL: ,
