Asymptotic results for silent elimination

Abstract : Following the model of Bondesson, Nilsson, and Wikstrand, we consider randomly filled urns, where the probability of falling into urn i is the geometric probability (1-q)qi-1. Assuming n independent random entries, and a fixed parameter k, the interest is in the following parameters: Let T be the smallest index, such that urn T is non-empty, but the following k are empty, then: XT= number of balls in urn T, ST= number of balls in urns with index larger than T, and finally T itself..
