Other Applications

Part of the In Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 117)

This chapter contains miscellaneous computational probability applications. Section 11.1 concerns algorithms for calculating the probability distribution of the longest path of a series—parallel stochastic activity network with continuous activity durations. Section 11.2 concerns the use of APPL in determining whether a continuous random variable obeys Benford’s law. Finally, Section 11.3 contains miscellaneous computational probability applications that are not covered elsewhere in the monograph.
