Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In my homework I've encountered a discrete probability distribution of this form:

[tex]f(k,\lambda)=N \frac{\lambda^k}{k!}[/tex]

[tex]k[/tex] is the variable, and [tex]\lambda[/tex] is a parameter. I'm curious what is this distribution - what's its name and where can it be applied. I will be grateful for, for example, redirecting me to the proper wikipedia article. Thanks!
