Poisson Distribution

Independent random events occuring in a defined time interval or a defined length, area or space volume follow Poisson distribution with parameter λ equal to the average number of events per the defined time, length, space or volume unit. The probability P of seeing exactly x events during the defined time interval or in the defined length, space or volume unit is given by the formula:
 P(X=x) = e-λ λx x!

λ≥0, x≥0
