5.3: Expected Value and Variance
The expected value of a RV is also referred to as its mean value, and as such it is a
measure of central tendency in the population of all values that the RV may take.
Definition: If X is a discrete RV with
5.5: Binomial Probability Distribution
The defining characteristics of a Binomial Experiment are the following:
1. The experiment consists of a sequence of n identical trials.
2. Each trial will result in exactly one of two possible outcom
5.6: Poisson Probability Distribution
The defining characteristics of a Poisson experiment are:
1. The probability of the occurrence of the event of interest stays constant for any 2
intervals of equal length.
2. The occurrence of the even
