File Information

PoissRatioCdf computes the cumulative distribution function (cdf) and/or the probability mass function (pmf) of the random variable X which is proportional to the ratio of two independent Poisson random variables, X = constant * (Y_lambdaNum / Y_lambdaDen), where constant is given constant, Y_lambdaNum is a random variable with Poisson distribution with parameter lambdaNum, and Y_lambdaDen follows the 1-displaced Poisson distribution (shifted by 1 to the right), with parameter lambdaDen, respectively.

The cumulative distribution function is given by
cdf = Prob( X <= x) = Prob(constant * (Y_lambdaNum / Y_lambdaDen) <= x).

This could be a useful modeling concentration measurements based on spectrometric methods. For more details on the method and its application for evaluation of the concentration measurements based on PTR-MS (Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry) see e.g. Arendacka etal. (JBR 2008).
