Abstract:

A sequential sampling procedure is given for selecting the most probable event from a multinomial distribution. Observations are taken sequentially until the largest count in any cell is equal to N or when the difference between the largest and the next largest cell count is equal to r, where r and N are given positive integers. Probability of a correct selection and expected sample number are given.
