## Poisson processes #

A Poisson process is a way to model series of events which happen at random intervals with a known mean. Precisely, a discrete process $$\{N(t)\mid t\in\mathbb{N}\}$$ indexed by time is Poisson with parameter $$\lambda$$ if the number of events in any interval of length $$\tau$$ is distributed $$Poisson(\lambda\tau)$$.
