Classical formula of probability. the probability of
finding 0, 1, 7 or 8 elements when 8 elements fall
independantly with a constant probability. I send next
week a private explanation with excel files for who wants.
Send me a private mail if you are interested. (John,
you are directly included ;-).

Not I. Boismard.

"L'Évangile de Marc, sa préhistoire" pp 30ff
M.-É. Boismard - 1994 - Gabalda, Paris,

Looks hard to define it for computer (just see : the ONOMA MOI,
DIHGHSANTO POS, PANTES + EQAUM : all of this is difficult to
code).

Lamouille found a large set of Lukan-style elements, and
with Boismard, they defined and classified them quite
striclty, but the definition of Boismard in his work
on Mark is less restrictive, and so his own set looks
wider.

I forget the references of Lamouille list. Probably :

"Les Actes des deux apôtres"
M.-É. Boismard, A. Lamouille et Justin Taylor - 1990- Gabalda, Paris

But perhabs the previous one, on the Occid. version.
