Identify which portions of time that you spend correspond to the propagation delay, the transmission delay, the processing delay and the queueing delay, respectively. 2. Assume that N ( t ) ,t ≥ 0 is a Poisson process. Prove or disprove the following: the random variables N (1) and N (2) are independent. 3. Carefully show that definitions I and II given in the notes for a Poisson process are equivalent. Hint: In deriving II from I, set up a differential equation in the following manner. First define P ( t + h ) := P ( { N ( t + h ) = 0 } ). Then P ( t + h ) = P ( { N ( t ) = 0 ,N ( t + h )- N ( t ) = 0 } ) = P ( { N ( t ) = 0 } ) P ( { N ( t + h )- N ( t ) = 0 } ) = P ( t )(1- λh + o ( h )) , hence P ( t + h )- P ( t ) h =- λP ( t ) + o ( h ) h ....
