1 - p b 3 E[W] ------- + E[W] = --- E[W] ( --- E[W] - 1 ) + ------ p 4 2 2 |
is:
-------------------------- / 2+b / 8(1-p) 2+b 2 E[W] = ----- + \ / -------- + ( ----- ) 3b \/ 3bp 3b This is formula (13) in Padhye's paper |
You can use your Mathematical skills or use Maple. If you use your Math. skills, write out the derivation. If you use Maple, enter the Maple commands used in a file and turn the file in as "hw4a" using:
You need to learn Maple on your own - try Google or "? command" (from inside Maple).
Hint: use the "solve" command
can be approximated by:
------- 1 / 3 B(p) = ----- \ / ----- RTT \/ 2bp |
Again, you can use your Mathematical skills or use Maple. If you use your Math. skills, write out the derivation. If you use Maple, enter the Maple commands used in a file and turn the file in as "hw4b" using:
Hint: if you use Maple, try the "series" command
