Abstract:

Two simple stochastic models are considered which describe the increase of converts in a population when an initial number of converts are introduced into the population, and converts attempts to convert others only successful converts can convert others. The emphasis is on how the probability of conversion increases with the number of attempted conversions and the initial number of converts. A numerical illustration is given. Author
