WHAT DOES POISSON DISTRIBUTION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Poisson distribution

In probability theory and statistics, the Poisson distribution, named after French mathematician Siméon Denis Poisson, is a discrete probability distribution that expresses the probability of a given number of events occurring in a fixed interval of time and/or space if these events occur with a known average rate and independently of the time since the last event. The Poisson distribution can also be used for the number of events in other specified intervals such as distance, area or volume. For instance, suppose someone typically gets 4 pieces of mail per day on average. There will be, however, a certain spread: sometimes a little more, sometimes a little fewer, once in a while nothing at all. Given only the average rate, for a certain period of observation, and assuming that the process, or mix of processes, that produces the event flow is essentially random, the Poisson distribution specifies how likely it is that the count will be 3, or 5, or 10, or any other number, during one period of observation. That is, it predicts the degree of spread around a known average rate of occurrence.

Definition of Poisson distribution in the English dictionary

The definition of Poisson distribution in the dictionary is a distribution that represents the number of events occurring randomly in a fixed time at an average rate λ; symbol P0. For large n and small p with np = λ it approximates to the binomial distribution Bi.
