6 Handout Problems 6 & 7 Problem 6: ▫Gamma function and integration practice Problem 7: ▫important continuous distributions and their relationships 6 Technical

7 From Bernoulli Trials to Discrete Waiting Time (Handout Problems 1-4) 7

8 Poisson [ pwa’s ɔ ̃] Distribution Poisson Approximation to Binomial (PAB) ▫Handout Problem 5 The true utility of Poisson distribution—Poisson process: ▫Sort of the limiting case of Bernoulli trials (use PAB to facilitate thinking) ▫“continuous” Bernoulli trials 8

13 Poisson Process 13

14 Discrete Distribution Based On Bernoulli Trails 14

15 Continuous Distribution Based On Poisson Process 15

16 Examples of Poisson Process Radioactive disintegrations Flying-bomb hits on London Chromosome interchanges in cells Connection to wrong number Bacteria and blood counts Feller: An Introduction to Probability Theory and Its Applications (3e) Vol. 1. §VI.6. 16

17 Radioactive Disintegrations 17 Geiger Counter Geiger Rutherford Chadwick

18 Rutherford, Chadwick, and Ellis’ 1920 Experiment #intervals (recorded) N 2608 Intensity (7.5s)

19 Explanation There are 57 time intervals (7.5 sec each) recorded zero emission. There are 203 time intervals (7.5 sec each) recorded 1 emission. …… There are total 2608 time intervals (7.5 sec each) involved. On average, each interval recorded 3.87 emissions. Use 3.87 as the intensity of the Poisson process that models the counts of emissions on each of the 2608 intervals. 19

20 What’s the waiting time until recording 40 emissions? 20
