Abstract

Consider throwing n balls at random into m urns, each ball landing in urn i with probability p(i). Let S be the resulting number of singletons, i. e., urns containing just one ball. We give an error bound for the Kolmogorov distance from the distribution of S to the normal, and estimates on its variance. These show that if n, m and (p(i),1
