Poisson distribution

Started by HARI KRISHNA Vuppaladhadiam September 30, 2000
I would like to generate random numbers with poisson distribution. Is anyone
having any reference to this program. (without using Comm toolbox).

Hi,

You can use random() function. Try its help in Matalb. It can generate
random numbers with a number of different distributions.

Regards.
Imran.

hi,
see Numerical Recipes in C, it has an algorithm to generate RV s with poisson
distribution

hi,
the generation of RV s based on rejection method approximates the
asymptotic behaviour of the distribution function. the degree of
approximation can be controlled in the implementation.
