How Many Singles, Doubles, Triples, Etc., Should The Coupon Collector Expect?, a short note by Doron Zeilberger). Motwani, Rajeev ; Raghavan, Prabhakar (1995 "3.6.
Let Zirdisplaystyle Z_ir denote the event that the idisplaystyle i -th coupon was not picked in the first rdisplaystyle r trials. An alternative statement is: Given n coupons, how many coupons do you expect you need to draw with replacement before having drawn each coupon at least once? Armory to add 2 levels to The International 2016 Battle Pass. The mathematical analysis of the problem reveals that the expected number of trials needed grows as (nlog(n)displaystyle Theta (nlog(n). Then: PZir(11n)rer/ndisplaystyle 1nright)rleq e-r/nendaligned Thus, for rnlogndisplaystyle rbeta nlog n, we have PZire(nlogn nndisplaystyle PleftZ_irrightleq e(-beta nlog n nn-beta.
