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:

Var(x)
