MIXED COMPOUND POISSON DISTRIBUTIONS* BY GORD WILLMOT Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, University of Waterloo ABSTRACT The distribution of total claims payable by an insurer is considered when the frequency of claims is a mixed Poisson random variable.

5) Which of the following variables, if any, would you expect to be Poisson distributed? • The number of students in a sample of classes across UW No, this would probably be normally distributed; although the values would be whole numbers, this is not a Poisson distribution.

Poisson Toolbox Page 2 Copyright Alan Ryder, 2004 Hockey Analytics www.HockeyAnalytics.com Introduction Whenever any rational analysis is performed on any sport one is almost inevitably concerned with the impact of either performance or strategy on the probability of winning.
The Poisson Distribution History The Poisson distribution was originally derived by Simeon Denis Poisson (1781-1840) in 1838. He was a French mathematician, geometer and physicist, and known as the first person to derive the underlying formula for the Poisson distribution.
