Lec. 08 Discrete (and Continuous) Probability Distributions

Independence

Discrete Uniform Distribution

What are some examples of this?Binomial Distribution

If interested in obtaining the probability of r successes out of n trials over a range of r, when the probability is known see our first example of the course!Poisson DistributionA Poisson experiment is a statistical experiment that has the following properties:The experiment results in outcomes that can be classified as successes or failures.The average number of successes () that occurs in a specified region is known.Probability that a success will occur is proportional to the size of the region.Probability that a success will occur in an extremely small region is virtually zero.

Poisson Distribution ExampleFirst, code up the Poisson distribution for a mean of your choosing, and display the histogram.
