A Note on Negative Hypergeometric Distribution and Its Approximation
Authors: S. B. Mansuri
Abstract:In this paper, at first we explain about negative hypergeometric distribution and its properties. Then we use the w-function and the Stein identity to give a result on the poisson approximation to the negative hypergeometric distribution in terms of the total variation distance between the negative hypergeometric and poisson distributions and its upper bound.
