Jeffrey D. Lindsay  
In finding a new solution to a classic probability problem, The Collector's Problem, concerning the collection of items in a set, a new and useful recursive function has been found, the "twodimensional factorial." A Web adaptation of J.D. Lindsay, "A New Solution for the Probability of Completing Sets in Random Sampling: Definition of the 'TwoDimensional Factorial'," The Mathematical Scientist, 17: 101110 (1992).
