The Poisson distribution as an approximation of the binomial distributionIntroductionWhen I was reading up on radioactive decay, I found out that the probability of decay could be expressed in terms of a discrete probability distribution. I had to look it up further because I had just recently learned about probability distributions in math. What I found out was intriguing; the number of atoms decaying in a specific interval of time is actually a discrete variable. It also adheres to Poisson’s postulates, talked about later, so it can be expressed in terms of Poisson distribution. However, when what I noticed was […]
