Approaches Used for Derivations and Approximations
This chapter provides background on different approaches, results, and techniques that are used in several of the chapters. Some of the topics: order statistics and direct integration; random walks and the reflection principle; ballot problems; the Karlin–McGregor theorem; Poisson and compound Poisson approximation; Bonferroni bounds; the Q2/ Q3 Markov-type approximation.
