Heads or Tails(Coin Toss)

When a fair coin is tossed, the only posssible outcomes are Heads (H) and Tails (T). When a coin is tossed many times, the outcomes can be represented as a sequence of Hs and Ts. In this project, we will analyze the sequence of outcomes from tossing a fair coin. You should note that this analysis applies to computer data as well since we could denote Heads using 1 and Tails using 0 rather than H and T. Such analysis can be applied to message encoding and compression.

One important aspect of analyzing such a sequence is the number and lengths of the embedded "runs". A "run" is a sequence of consecutive Heads or Tails. For example, in the sequence HHHHTTHHTTTHT, there is a run of 4 Hs, a run of 2 Ts, a run of 2 Hs, a run of 3 Ts, a run of 1 H and finally a run of 1 T.

We will count the number of runs of each length for both Heads and Tails. In theory, if we toss a fair coin N times, there is a (very small, teeny, tiny) non-zero probability that all N tosses will be Heads or all N tosses will be Tails. Therefore, in theory the longest possible run for N tosses is N. In an award-winning paper (College Math Journal, Vol 21, 1990), Mark Schilling calculates that the expected longest run for N tosses is the integer closest to log2(N / 2) plus or minus 3, which is much less than N. Our program will help validate Mark's theory.
