Subject:   Geometric Distributions
Author: Craig Russell
Date: Nov 5 2003
While the Buffon's Needle experiment listed under this topic is "nice," it is
NOT a geometric distribution.  A geometric distribution is specifically the
distribution of the random variable "number of independent Bernoulli trials
until a success."  I haven't been successful finding a good tool that can
simulate the (real) geometric distribution... anyone know of one?  (actually, I
know of one, but it requires a version of Java that was published only recently,
and our labs aren't yet updated...)
