Title: The relationship between the negative binomial distribution and hitchhiking
Authors: Nicolas, Sally
Advisors: Dib, Youssef 
Subjects: Hitchhiking
Issue Date: 2018
To evaluate the number of days for a hitchhiker to visit N cities that they are connected through a path, we have made a stochastic time model and we proved that this phenomenon adapts a negative binomial distribution. In each day the hitchhiker can visit only one city which is considered as a point of attraction and every time he trips in one direction. In order to get a probability of having a successful hitchhike, in our study, we take the average of the statistics that are collected from soliciting 62 incidental rides in 73 attempts.
