Abstract. A general technique is developed to study the waiting time distribution for the r-th occurrence of a success run of length k in a sequence of Markov dependent trials. Sooner and later waiting time problems are also discussed.
Key words and phrases: Probability mass function, probability generating function, waiting time, run, sooner and later problems, distributions of order k.
