This JavaScript program computes the maximum likelihood
estimator of, and conservative confidence intervals for, the
success probability in a sequence of independent Bernoulli
trials. The number of trials is assumed to be known as is
the observed number of successes in those trials. The theory
underlying the computations can be found in the paper
*Conservative Confidence Intervals for a Single
Parameter* by Mark Finkelstein, Howard G. Tucker and
Jerry Alan Veeh, which appeared in *Communications in
Statistics: Theory and Methods* volume 29 #8 pages
1911-1928 (2000). Some of the computational methods use
algorithms from *Applied Statistics Algorithms*. The
annotated source code is available
