What other functions can be used to aproximate Poisson's distribution?

  1. Jun 17, 2011 #1
    I've been trying to fit some data to a Poisson distribution using Curve Expert but have been unable to program the factorial function in it. I'm wondering what other continous function can be used to approximate poisson's distribution.
