Generation of Poisson distributionUsing MATLAB

Question

This problem examines testing the fit of “experimental” data to known distribution.

See the class notes for how to generate a Poisson distribution.

a) Develop a script & supporting functions that performs the following.

a. Prompt the user for λ and N

b. Generate N RVs using the equation below. See the lecture notes for how to generate a Poisson RV and how to generate a discrete RV.

Z = X + Y where X ~ Poisson(λ) and c. Plot a histogram of Z. Hint, I recommend using the hist command with the values of the bins selected by the script rather than letting the hist command select them.

d. Estimate λ using the Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE). The MLE for a Poisson distribution is the mean on the samples. Display the estimate of λ and the user input.

e. Extra Credit: Find M equi-probable intervals, estimate the Chi-squared parameter (see the lecture notes), and perform the chi-squared test. Hint, the probability of a

Poisson distribution between I and J is given by b) Run the script with λ = 4, and N = 200. Record the output as part of your solution.

Summary

This question belongs to MATLAB software and discusses about application of MATLAB in statistics andto generate a Poisson distribution.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
