## Gamblers Ruin V3

### Preface

gold Update 3/7/2024. The Gamblers' Ruin Expectation E(P(N)) is included under the topics of Random Walks. Console program outputs data as table in TCL table format and comma delimited spreadsheet. These auxiliary decks are used to proof features or subroutines of the prospective gui program. The Monopoly page from GWM seems closest in theme to what I was trying to learn. Using dice and running with random throws along a track or path like Snakes and Ladders.

gold Update 3/7/2024. The author is retired engineer on Windows 10 and no longer has proofing access to Unix machines. Unix is respected after use of so many decades in engineering, but my wings are lost. I did find a useful online IDE, jdoodle. I can paste from a text file, edit, and run an output using this online IDE.

### Not a Replacement for TCL Core

This page on developing pseudocode examples and one line procedures is not a replacement for the current Tcl core and Tcllib, which is much improved since Tcl version 4, and other <faster> language constructs. math ops, Tcllib routines, and other compiled routines can reduce the cost of big-data tasks by about 1/3. The time savings of the core are not always obvious on small quantities of data, like 4 or 5 numbers. Performance of one-line programs may suffer degradation due to lengthy recursion calls, and may be limited by constraints on recursion. Dependence on math operator notation, helper procedures, math check examples, degradation due to lengthy recursion calls, and special library functions should be noted in the comment lines.

gold 3/8/2024 Draft & Check. The Gambler's Ruin Problem involves two gamblers, A and B, with initial fortunes of \$a\$ and \$b\$, respectively. They play a game in which one of them wins a dollar from the other, and this continues until one of them has no money left. The probability of player A winning the game is \$a/(a+b)\$. The expected duration of the game is \$(a+b)^2/(4ab)\$, and the probability of player A winning all their money before player B does is \$a/(a+b)\$.

The Gamblers Ruin Expectation refers to the expected amount of money that a player will have at the end of the game, given the initial conditions and the rules of the game. This expectation over several games can be calculated using probability theory and mathematical formulas to determine the average outcome over multiple rounds of the game.

### Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation & Probability over 1 or more games

gold 3/8/2024. The Gamblers Ruin Expectation E(P(N)) is included under the topics of Random Walks. As defined here, expectation E(P(N)) is the combined probability over 1 or more games with a constant win probability for each game. The example here is 50 percent chance of winning for each game and complement percentage for losing. The Expectation E(P(N)) or Gamblers chance of going broke after N successive games is E(P(N)) = < 0.5 + 0.25 + 0.125 + . . Nth game >. The general E(P(N) formula over the total games until finish is formula E(P(N)) = expr {1. - (1./2.)**\$N} .

gold 3/8/2024. The more games, the closer the E(P(N)) approaches 1. The Expectation E(P(N) for an infinite set of games is 1, meaning a dead loss over all total games. Check for 1 game is expr {0.5 } returns 0.5. Check for 2 games is expr {0.5 + 0.25 } returns 0.75 Check for 3 games is expr {0.5 + 0.25 + 0.125 } returns 0.875 and ''expr { 1. - (1./2.)**3. } returns 0.875. Check for 4 games is expr { 1. - (1./2.)**4. } returns 0.9375. The Gamblers Expectation of win over all games or original flush state at E(P(N)) = 0 is not expected here, but still can not be ruled out.

The Gamblers Ruin Expectation refers to the expected amount of money that a player will have at the end of the game, given the initial conditions and the rules of the game. This expectation can be calculated using probability theory and mathematical formulas to determine the average outcome over multiple rounds of the game.

When considering the probability over one or more games, it is important to analyze the likelihood of different outcomes occurring in each round and how they affect the overall outcome of the game. The probability of winning or losing in each round, as well as the initial amount of money each player has, will influence the overall probability of winning or losing over multiple games.

By understanding the concepts of probability and Gamblers Ruin Expectation, players can make informed decisions about their betting strategies and assess the risks involved in playing games of chance. It is essential to consider factors such as the odds, the rules of the game, and the initial conditions to determine the expected outcome and make strategic decisions while playing.

### Outline for Applications of the Gambler's Ruin Problem

1. Finance: The Gambler's Ruin Problem is used in finance to analyze the risks involved in investment strategies. It helps investors understand the probability of losing their entire investment before achieving a certain level of profit. This can be applied to stock market investments, portfolio management, and options trading.

2. Engineering: In engineering, the Gambler's Ruin Problem is used to analyze the reliability of systems. It can be applied to the study of components in a system, where the failure of one component can lead to the failure of the entire system. The Gambler's Ruin Problem helps engineers assess the probability of system failure and make informed decisions about component design and system redundancy.

3. Computer Science: In computer science, the Gambler's Ruin Problem is used in the study of algorithms and data structures.

4. Gamblers' Ruin Expectation. The Gamblers' Ruin Expectation E(P(N)) is included under the topics of Random Walks. The example given is a 50% chance of winning for each game, and the Expectation E(P(N)) is the combined probability over 1 or more games.

5. General E(P(N)) Formula. The general formula for the Expectation E(P(N)) over the total games until finish is E(P(N)) = 1. - (1./2.)^N. The more games, the closer the E(P(N)) approaches 1.

6. Infinite Set of Games. The Expectation E(P(N)) for an infinite set of games is 1, meaning a dead loss over all total games.

7. Conclusion. The Collatz Sequences and Gamblers' Ruin Expectation are interconnected through probability analysis. Understanding these concepts can provide insights into various applications and mathematical concepts.

### Pseudocode Section for Gamblers Ruin

```#Pseudocode with sample problems
procedure Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation(games, probability_win)
if games < 1 then
return error: "The games must be 1 or larger"
end if
return (1 - (probability_win ^ games))
end procedure

# Examples:
# Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation(1, 0.5) returns 0.5
# Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation(2, 0.5) returns 0.75
# Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation(3, 0.5) returns 0.875
# Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation(4, 0.5) returns 0.9375
# Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation(3, 0.14) returns 0.997256

The pseudocode defines a procedure named Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation that takes two parameters: games and probability_win. The procedure checks if the number of games is less than 1 and returns an error message if it is. The procedure then calculates the expected value using the formula (1 - (probability_win ^ games)). The procedure returns the calculated expected value. The provided examples demonstrate how to use the Gamblers_Ruin_Expectation procedure with different input values and expected return values. This pseudocode performs the same operation as the TCL code, but in a more readable and platform independent manner.

### TCL code Section

if { \$limit <= 1 } {
return -code error "The limit must be larger than 1"
}

#  returns 0.61314719276545848 or or 61.3 percent
set  Rehder_limit_collatz_sequences [ return [ expr { 1.- (log(3)/log(2))/(log(3)/log(2)+1.)} ] ]
#  returns  0.3868528072345415 or 38.6 percent
# Crandal developed some limits on his Collatz-like crandal_sequences,
# which are much  different and shorter from Collatz_Sequences.
proc crandal_sequences_height_crandal   {m }  {return [expr {( log(\$m)) / ( log(4./3.))}]}
proc crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified {n}  {return [expr { 2.* (log( \$n))/(log(16./9.))}]} ```

### Pseudocode Section for Krasikov-Lagarias limit ref Collatz Sequences

```#Pseudocode with test cases
Procedure collatz_sequences_Krasikov_Lagarias_limit(limit):
if limit <= 1:
return "The limit must be larger than 1"
else:
return limit ** 0.84

# Testcases
# Krasikov and Lagarias limit 4: 3.204
# Krasikov and Lagarias limit 5: 3.864
# Krasikov and Lagarias limit 10: 6.918
# Krasikov and Lagarias limit 20: 12.384
# Krasikov and Lagarias limit 50: 26.738```

The pseudocode defines a procedure called "collatz_sequences_Krasikov_Lagarias_limit" that takes a "limit" parameter. It first checks if the limit is less than or equal to 1. If so, it returns an error message indicating that the limit must be larger than 1. Otherwise, it calculates the square root of the limit raised to the power of 0.84 and returns the result. This pseudocode performs the same operation as the TCL code, but in a more readable and platform independent manner.

### Pseudocode Section for Crandal Sequences Height ref Collatz Sequences

```#pseudocode
procedure crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified(n):
return 2 * (log(n) / log(16/9))
end
# Testcases >> but need to check results here
# crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified(9) = 4
# crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified(16) = 5.631
# crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified(25) = 7.244
# crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified(36) = 8.857
# crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified(49) = 10.470```

The pseudocode defines a procedure called "crandal_sequences_height_crandal_modified" that takes a single parameter "n". It calculates the natural logarithm of "n" divided by the natural logarithm of 16/9, and then multiplies the result by 2 to get the final output. This pseudocode performs the same operation as the TCL code, but in a more readable and platform independent manner.

Draft on Pseudocode.

The pseudocode above describes the process of calculating the mean of two or more values in TCL. It takes two parameters: "val" (the first value) and "args" (other values). The procedure first calculates the number of values, including the first one. If there is only one value, The procedure returns 0. Otherwise, The procedure calculates the sum of all values and then divides the sum by the number of values to get the mean. Finally, the procedure returns the mean. The provided testcases are correct and cover different scenarios for the "math_mean" procedure, such as calculating the mean of two values, more than two values, and handling cases with only one value or no values at all.

The provided testcases are correct and cover different scenarios for the "math_mean" procedure, such as calculating the mean of two values, more than two values, and handling cases with only one value or no values at all. The pseudocode includes test cases to verify the correctness of the math_mean procedure.

Draft. Developing test cases for this pseudocode would depend on the specific problem being addressed and the expected output. However, in general, test cases could include:

1. Testing the initial values of the variables

2. Testing the increment of the testcase_number

3. Testing the conversion of sides to floating-point numbers

4. Testing the expected computations and calculations, under expected minimum, maximum, and boundary values

Note. What about all negative values or mixed positive/negative values. Under definitions of arithmetic mean? Possibility of truncation error?

``` puts " math_mean = [math_mean 1 2 -3 4]" # math mean = 4/4 = 1 , correct
puts " math_mean = [math_mean 1 2 -3 ]"  # math mean = 0/3 = 0 , correct
puts " math_mean = [math_mean 1 2 -10 ] "  # math mean = -7/3 = -2.333 , should be?
puts " math_mean = [math_mean 1  -2  3 ] "  # math mean =  2/3 = +.67 , should be?
puts " math_mean = [math_mean -1  -2  -3 ] " # math mean = -6/3 = -2  , correct
set mean [ expr { (\$sum*1.)/\$N } ] # fix for truncation error?
math_mean = -2.333
math_mean = 0.6666 ```

1. Testcase for mean_1: Input: List = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Expected output: 3

Pseudocode: The math_mean procedure takes in a value val and additional values args. The procedure calculates the mean of all the values provided. The procedure only one value is provided, it returns 0. The procedure then calculates the sum of all values and divides it by the total number of values to get the mean. The mean value is returned at the end.

### Gaps between Twin Primes, What expected?

The first 60 prime gaps are:

1, 2, 2, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 6, 2, 6, 4, 2, 4, 6, 6, 2, 6, 4, 2, 6, 4, 6, 8, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 14, 4, 6, 2, 10, 2, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6, 2, 10, 2, 4, 2, 12, 12, 4, 2, 4, 6, 2, 10, 6, 6, 6, 2, 6, 4, 2, ... (sequence A001223 in the OEIS). The average gap between primes increases as the natural logarithm of these primes, and therefore the ratio of the prime gap to the primes involved decreases (and is asymptotically zero). This is a consequence of the prime number theorem. --- Wikipedia

product = 1
N = length(args)

# (1*2*3*4)**(1/4)  = 2.2133638394
# (4*36*45*50*75)**(1/5) =30```

Draft. The procedure ::math::geometric_mean takes two or more values as input and calculates their geometric mean. The code first initializes a variable product to 1, which will be used to store the product of all the input values. The procedure then determines the number of values in the input list args and stores it in the variable N. The code then iterates through each value in the input list, multiplying the current value by the product variable. After the loop, the code calculates the exponent by dividing 1 by the number of values (N). Finally, the code calculates the geometric mean by raising the product variable to the power of the exponent and returns the result. The example usage demonstrates how to call the procedure with values 1, 2, 3, and 4, and prints the result (2.2133638).

```            set N [ expr { [ llength \$args ] + 1 } ]

# gm (1 2 3 4) = 2.213363839400643

# gm (4 36 45 50 75) =    30.000

The first 60 prime gaps are:

1, 2, 2, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 6, 2, 6, 4, 2, 4, 6, 6, 2, 6, 4, 2, 6, 4, 6, 8, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 14, 4, 6, 2, 10, 2, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6, 2, 10, 2, 4, 2, 12, 12, 4, 2, 4, 6, 2, 10, 6, 6, 6, 2, 6, 4, 2, ... (sequence A001223 in the OEIS). The average gap between primes increases as the natural logarithm of these primes, and therefore the ratio of the prime gap to the primes involved decreases (and is asymptotically zero). This is a consequence of the prime number theorem. --- Wikipedia

Taking averages between prime pairs, gaps of 2. what expected? mean 2, 4, 6, 6, 2, = 4 mean 2, 4, 14, 4, 6, 2, = 5 mean 2, 10, 6, 6, 6, 2 = 5 puts " math_mean = mean 2 4 6 6 2" puts " math_mean = mean 2 4 14 4 6 2" puts " math_mean = mean 2 10 6 6 6 2"

Draft. The pseudocode defines a function called geometric_mean that calculates the geometric mean of a list of values passed as arguments. It initializes a variable product to 1 and calculates the product of all values in the list. Then, it calculates the exponent as 1 divided by the number of values in the list and computes the geometric mean using the formula (product ^ exponent). The function returns the calculated geometric mean. Finally, the code calls the geometric_mean function with a list 1, 2, 3, 4 and prints the result.)

Functional and Imperative Programming Functional programming computes an expression, while imperative programming is a sequence of instructions modifying memory. The former relies on an automatic garbage collector, while the latter requires explicit memory allocation and deallocation. Memory and Execution Control Imperative programming provides greater control over execution and memory representation, but can be less efficient. Functional programming offers higher abstraction and execution safety, with stricter typing and automatic storage reclamation. Historical Perspectives Historically, functional programming was associated with symbolic applications, and imperative programming with numerical applications. However, advances in compiling and garbage collection have improved efficiency and execution safety for both paradigms. The Appeal of Tool Control Language TCL TCL emphasizes that efficiency need not preempt assurance, as long as efficiency remains reasonably good. This approach is gaining popularity among software producers.

Note. What about all negative values or mixed positive/negative values. Under definitions of arithmetic mean? Under math check. The procedure calculates the mean by summing all values and then dividing the sum by the number of values, regardless of the signs of the values. The arithmetic mean, also known as the average, is calculated by adding up all the values and then dividing the sum by the number of values. This definition applies to all types of values, including negative or mixed positive/negative values. The pseudocode accurately follows this definition by summing all values, regardless of their signs, and then dividing the sum by the number of values.

When calculating the arithmetic mean of a set of values, whether they are all negative, all positive, or a mix of positive and negative values, the process remains the same. The arithmetic mean is calculated by summing all the values and then dividing by the total number of values.

For example, if you have a set of negative values such as (-1, -2, -3), the arithmetic mean would be calculated by adding -1, -2, and -3 together to get -6, and then dividing by 3 (the total number of values) to get an arithmetic mean of -2.

Similarly, if you have a mix of positive and negative values (e.g., 1, -2, 3), you would sum the values (1 + (-2) + 3 = 2) and then divide by 3 to get an arithmetic mean of approximately 0.67.

The arithmetic mean calculation is not affected by the sign of the values, as it is a measure of central tendency that considers the magnitude of the values rather than their sign. ---

```# pseudocode
# example to illustrate this process:

# Function to check if a number is prime
function is_prime(n):
if n < 2:
return False
for i from 2 to sqrt(n):
if n % i == 0:
return False
return True

# Function to find twin prime pairs and calculate the gap

function find_twin_primes():
twin_primes = []
for i from 2 to MAX_NUMBER:
if is_prime(i) and is_prime(i + 2):
twin_primes.append((i, i + 2))

prime_gaps = []
for pair in twin_primes:
gap = pair[1] - pair[0]
prime_gaps.append(gap)

return prime_gaps

# Function to calculate the average of prime gaps

function calculate_average(gaps):
total = 0
for gap in gaps:
total += gap
average = total / len(gaps)
return average

# Main program
twin_prime_gaps = find_twin_primes()
average_gap = calculate_average(twin_prime_gaps)
print("Average gap between twin primes: ", average_gap)
