hi there,

Does anyone know if there is a poison distribution random number generator
available in Matlab?



Thanks.

In the Statistica ToolBox you have the following Random Number Generators:

    betarnd - Beta random numbers.
    binornd - Binomial random numbers.
    chi2rnd - Chi square random numbers.
    exprnd - Exponential random numbers.
    frnd - F random numbers.
    gamrnd - Gamma random numbers.
    geornd - Geometric random numbers.
    hygernd - Hypergeometric random numbers.
    lognrnd - Lognormal random numbers.
    mvnrnd - Multivariate normal random numbers.
    nbinrnd - Negative binomial random numbers.
    ncfrnd - Noncentral F random numbers.
    nctrnd - Noncentral t random numbers.
    ncx2rnd - Noncentral Chi-square random numbers.
    normrnd - Normal (Gaussian) random numbers.
    poissrnd - Poisson random numbers.
    random - Random numbers from specified distribution.
    raylrnd - Rayleigh random numbers.
    trnd - T random numbers.
    unidrnd - Discrete uniform random numbers.
    unifrnd - Uniform random numbers.
    weibrnd - Weibull random numbers.

HTH.

I think the poison distribution was left out of
MATLAB for environmental reasons.

Seriously, you probably want to sample from the Poisson
distribution and POISSRND (in the Statistics Toolbox) is
the function you are looking for.
