## What is Poisson Distribution?

A Poisson Distribution is a discrete probability distribution that describes the number of times an event occurs within a fixed interval of time or space if these events occur with a known average rate and independently of the time since the last event.

The Poisson distribution is characterized by a single parameter, the mean number of events per interval (λ). The probability of observing k events in an interval is given by the formula: P(k) = ((e^(-λ)) * (λ^k)) / k!
Where k is the number of events, λ is the mean number of events per interval, e is the base of the natural logarithm (approximately 2.718), and k! is the factorial of k (the product of all integers from 1 to k).

The Poisson distribution is used to model rare events, such as the number of phone calls received by a call center in a given hour, or the number of patients arriving at an emergency room in a given hour.
