Poisson Process 1: Video
Topic(s):
Discrete Distribution, Poisson
Stochastic Processes, Poisson Process
He uses the example of the number of cars passing a point to illustrate a Poisson process. This information is then used to gather information that is used to derive the Poisson distribution in the next video.
