Extension of Generalized Bernoulli Learning Models


In this article, we study the generalized Bernoulli learning model based on the probability of success pi = ai /n where i = 1,2,...n 0<a1<a2<...<an<n and n is positive integer. This gives the previous results given by Abdulnasser and Khidr [1], Rashad [2] and EL-Desouky and Mahfouz [3] as special cases, where pi = i/n pi = i2/n2 and pi = ip/np respectively. The probability function P(Wn = k) of this model is derived, some properties of the model are obtained and the limiting distribution of the model is given.
