Compound demand

The following pattern provides a useful model in many situations. Consider

D = k = 0 N Y k

where Y 0 = 0 , and the class { Y k : 1 k } is iid, independent of the counting random variable N . One natural interpretation is to consider N to be the number of customers in a store and Y k the amount purchased by the k th customer. Then D is the total demand of the actual customers. Hence, we call D the compound demand .

gend.m Uses coefficients of the generating functions for N and Y to calculate, in the integer case, the marginal distribution for the compound demand D and the joint distribution for { N , D } .

gendf.m function [d,pd] = gendf(gn,gy) is a function version of gend , which allows arbitrary naming of the variables. Calculates the distribution for D , but not the joint distribution for { N , D } .

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
