Error bounds. Error bound for the approximate distribution of the number of gaps when a circle is covered by random arcs. The error bound (given as an absolute error, measured in percentage points) is plotted against coverage depth, for arc lengths s = 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 (progressively smaller dashes) and 10-7 (solid).
