12: Finite Sampling Models

  • Page ID
  • This chapter explores a number of models and problems based on sampling from a finite population. Sampling without replacement from a population of objects of various types leads to the hypergeometric and multivariate hypergeometric models. Sampling with replacement from a finite population leads naturally to the birthday and coupon-collector problems. Sampling without replacement form an ordered population leads naturally to the matching problem and to the study of order statistics.
