I will in this Maple worksheet try to explore the
optimal stopping concepts introduced by:

Bruss, T (2000) Sum the Odds to One and Stop,
The Annals of Probability, Vol 28, No 3, pp 1394 -1391

One important question that we will answer is :
How many times do we need to roll a dice if we want
to maximize the probability of finding one six?
