Poisson Distribution Model
written by Francisco Esquembre
The Poisson Distribution Model shows how to use the Apache Commons Math library (included in EJS) to generate random numbers that follow the Poisson distribution. A histogram of the numbers is displayed. This simple teaching example illustrates the use of the Histogram view element and how to speed up a simulation by running the model several time before updating the view.
