Homework Help: Statistics, Poisson processes.

  1. Oct 31, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Here's what I've tried so far, not really sure how to go on with these problems. Been reading the textbook up and down on Poisson processes!

    Any hints or help? Especially 1.B, 1.C and 2.B, 2.C

    Your computation of P[N(2)-N(1)=5|N(1)=5] makes no sense (and gives a wrong answer as well). Think about the fundamental properties of a Poisson process.
