### Behavior of Commonest when there is an even split between the elements of the list it is given

How can I alter Commonest so that, when I give it an input of four zeroes and ones such as $\{0,1,1,0\}$, which has an even split in its elements, it returns the ...

### Is this the correct method in using bootstrapping to determine a lower confidence bound?

Quite often in industry, due to cost and schedule constraints, decisions must be made on small sample size data. I have 4 cycles-to-failure values resulting from running samples to failure in a ...

### Stochastic Approximation and Simulation using Running Median

I have a function $$F(X_{t+1},Y_{t}^{med})= \alpha X_{t+1} + (1-\alpha) Y_{t}^{med},$$ where $$Y_{t}^{med} = Median(Y_1, Y_2,... Y_t).$$ Moreover, $Y_1 = X_1$ and $Y_t = F(X_{t},Y_{t-1}^{med})$ ...

### Simulation Sample Paths for Stochastic Approximation Algorithm

Let $X_t$ be IID random variables in $[0,1]$ and CDF $F(\cdot)$. Suppose there exists a variable $Y_t$ given by: $Y_1 = X_1$ and $Y_t = \phi(X_t, \overline{Y}_{t-1}), \forall t >1$, where ...
