A Question about Poisson
Posted:
Sep 30, 1999 6:30 PM


The following applies to a Poisson process:
I am wondering how to calculate the probability that there are zero events in an interval given that one event occurs _in the interval before_. That is, Given the probability of an event occuring once in a random interval, what is the probability of there being zero events in the NEXT interval?
Thank you in advance for any response.
