Binomial Distribution

Hi,
I have been given an assignment on binomial distribution. I am trying to find out the applications of binomial distribution in computer science and other field. I am unable to find it.

Can someone guide me regarding this ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Binomial Distribution

The binomial distribution looks at small events that, individually, might or might not happen, but that don't influence each other. You can't think of anything like that in computers? Cache misses, hash collisions, etc. You should be able to find dozens.

Re: Binomial Distribution

Thanks for your reply. I do have some knowledge abt cache. There r three levels of cache. L1,L2,L3. The computer looks for frequently accessed data first in L1, then L2 and lastly L3. Can u please explain more about how binomial distribution can be used in cache misses. ?

How many are there in, say, one second?
