Poisson distribution

Poisson Process

  • Events that occur independently over time
    • Rate = lambda = y/t
      • number of occurrences over time

Poisson Distribution

  • Let y = number of occurrences in time t
  • Fixes the "time" and says "given the amount of time, how often does the event occur"
