Poisson_Sim: Simulation for Poisson Distribution

Description

A simple function to understand the algorithm to simulate (psuedo-)observations from binomial distribution. It is an implementation of the algorithm given in Section 11.3.1 "Simulation from Discrete Distributions". This function is not an alternative to the "rpois" function.

Usage

1
Poisson_Sim(lambda, n)

Arguments

lambda

rate of the Poisson RV

n

required number of pseudo-observations
