Abstract: It is known that the distribution of $(k1, k2)$-runs, arising from non-identical Bernoulli trials, is intractable. Hence, it is important to approximate $(k1, k2)$-runs by a suitable distribution, with reasonable accuracy. We discuss pseudo-binomial approximation to $(k1, k2)$-runs using Stein's method. The approximation results are of optimal order and improve upon the existing results in the literature.
