A Note on the Structure of a Stochastic Model Considered by V. M. Dandekar
π1: Each x i can take only the two values 0 (= failure) and 1 (= success) and the probability that x0 = 1 is p.
π2: For any m (or less) consecutive x i ’s at most one can be 1.
π3: If any m−1 (or more) consecutive x i ’s are known to be zeros then the next x i is 1 with probability p.
π3: If x0 = 0 then the conditional stochastic process x1, x2,… is the same as the original process x0, x1, x2,….
