On Buffon Machines and Numbers

Article by Flajolet, Philippe

In collections: Easily explained, Probability and statistics

The well-know needle experiment of Buffon can be regarded as an analog (i.e., continuous) device that stochastically "computes" the number 2/pi ~ 0.63661, which is the experiment's probability of success. Generalizing the experiment...
