Poisson Process 1: Video
Topic(s):
Discrete Distribution, Poisson
Stochastic Processes, Poisson Process
He uses the example of the number of cars passing a point to illustrate a Poisson process. This information is then used to gather information that is used to derive the Poisson distribution in the next video.

This video lecture introduces the definition of expected value and does a discrete example. Then the definition of variance is given, and properties are discussed, including the variance of a linear function of a random variable.
