Abstract. The probability generating function of number of trials for the start-up demonstration test with rejection upon d failures is derived. The exact distribution of the number of trials is obtained. Some recurrence relations for the probabilities are also established. The average length of the test is derived. Some illustrative examples are finally presented.
Key words and phrases: Probability generating function, runs, start-up demonstration test.
