Compound Poisson approximation with association or negative association via Stein’s method. (English) Zbl 1296.62037
Summary: In this note we show how the properties of association and negative association can be combined with Stein’s method for compound Poisson approximation. Applications include $$k$$-runs in iid Bernoulli trials, an urn model with urns of limited capacity and extremes of random variables.
