rndp

Purpose

Computes pseudo-random numbers with Poisson distribution.

Format

x = rndp(r, c, lambda)
Parameters:
  • r (scalar) – number of rows of resulting matrix.
  • c (scalar) – number of columns of resulting matrix.
  • lambda (MxN matrix) – ExE conformable with r x c resulting matrix, shape parameters for Poisson distribution.
Returns:

x (r x c matrix) – Poisson distributed pseudo-random numbers.

Remarks

The properties of the pseudo-random numbers in x are:

E(x) = lambda
Var(x) = lambda
x = 0,1,2,…
lambda > 0
