#### Contributions to the Generalized Coupon Collector and LRU Problems

##### Christian Berthet

Based upon inequalities on Subset Probabilities, proofs of several conjectures on the Generalized Coupon Collector Problem (i.e. CCP with unequal popularity) are presented. Then we derive a very simple asymptotic relation between the expectation of the waiting time for a partial collection in the CCP, and the Miss rate of a LRU cache.
