Title: 
Binomial Approximation to a Poisson Random Variable
Author(s): 
Boucher, Chris
Language: 
eng
Description: 
  • If a coin that comes up heads with probability p is tossed n times, the number of heads observed follows a binomial probability distribution. The Poisson probability distribution can be regarded as a limiting case of the binomial distribution as the number of tosses grows and the probability of heads on a given toss is adjusted to keep the expected number of heads constant. More precisely, if Xn is a binomial random variable with parameters n and λ/n, then the probability distribution for Xn approaches a Poisson distribution with parameter λ as n approaches infinity
