The Poisson and Exponential Distribution



(1) Poisson and Exponential Distribution have connections.

(2) Poisson distribution is used to describe the number of occurrences per unit of time.

(3) While exponential distribution can describe the length of time between each occurrence.

(4) Therefore, follow this intuition, if you set Poisson to capture the probability of zero occurrence, we should find the bridge to get the same result from the exponential distribution.
