2008 (English)In: Journal of Applied Probability, Vol. 45, no 3, 901-906 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In a sequence of independent Bernoulli trials the probability of success in the kth trial is pk = a/(a + b + k - 1). An explicit formula for the binomial moments of the number of two consecutive successes in the first n trials is obtained and some consequences of it are derived.
