Abstract:

Discrete renewal process, until recently, have not been applied to the mathematical modelling of physical processes. Analyses of such renewal processes have proceeded on the basis of generating functions but the results are often too complicated to be of use. This paper presents an alternative approach to discrete renewal theory and calculates many of the more complex statistics of such processes.
