There's a refrence to erlang distribution, but the article does not mention the mutual dependence between Erlang Distribution and Poission Distribution. That is, the number of occurrences within a given interval follows a Poission distribution iff the time between occurrences follows an exponential distribution. (unsigned by user:Oobyduby)
Do we need the "Computer software for the Poisson distribution" section?
Do we need the "Computer software for the Poisson distribution" section? Realistically it is a very common distribution and effectively any generic statistical computing package will include this functionality. As it article stands there is little reason not to add MATLAB, SAS or even C (through some C external library akin to SciPy, like GSL) examples. Just something like: "Poisson distributed random variables can be readily generated in R, Excel, Mathematica, SAS, Python (SciPy), MATLAB, C/C++ (GSL), etc. ..." should be adequate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Homo Ex Machina (talk • contribs) 00:23, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
