Waiting times for clumps of patterns and for structured motifs in random sequences

V.T. Stefanov, S. Robin, S. Schbath
2007 Discrete Applied Mathematics  
This paper provides exact probability results for waiting times associated with occurrences of two types of motifs in a random sequence.  ...  Second, we provide explicit expressions for the probability generating functions of both the waiting time until the first occurrence, and the interarrival time between consecutive occurrences, of a structured  ...  As we did in Section 2.3 for the number of clumps, the above theorem can be used to get the p.g.f. of the number of occurrences of a structured motif in a random sequence.  ...

Martingale Methods for Patterns and Scan Statistics [chapter]

Vladimir Pozdnyakov, J. Michael Steele
2009 Scan Statistics  
We show how martingale techniques (both old and new) can be used to obtain otherwise hard-to-get information for the moments and distributions of waiting times for patterns in independent or Markov sequences  ...  In particular, we show how these methods provide moments and distribution approximations for certain scan statistics, including about variable length scan statistics.  ...  Introduction The martingale method for waiting times for patterns in an independent sequence was pioneered in Li (1980) , and in the intervening time many variations on the original idea have been developed  ...

Mendelian microsatellite loci for the Caribbean coral Acropora palmata

IB Baums, CR Hughes, ME Hellberg
2005 Marine Ecology Progress Series  
Genetic estimates of population connectivity and clonal structure should be part of these efforts, but such studies have been hampered by low levels of mitochondrial DNA variation in corals, and an apparent  ...  We developed 8 polymorphic microsatellite markers for A. palmata, and performed crosses to confirm co-dominant inheritance patterns.  ...  Random numbers were generated for each of 3 nested circles with radii of 15, 10 and 5 m. The random numbers generated were precise to 5°of arc and 50 cm along strike.  ...

Both calcitic and dolomitic phases show microbial fossils and structures with fabrics of mineralised extra-cellular polymeric substances (EPS).  ...  Whereas dolomite shows no post-depositional diagenetic modification and records preservation of finely detailed EPS mineralisation, the calcite of clumps of clots and mesoclots shows neomorphism with reorganisation  ...  Employees at PDO's Geomatics Section are appreciated for their assistance in digitizing and drafting the geological map of the Qarn Alam Salt Dome.  ...
