Detailed Description

template<typename _IntType = int, typename _RealType = double>
class std::poisson_distribution< _IntType, _RealType >

A discrete Poisson random number distribution.

The formula for the Poisson probability mass function is $ p(i) = \frac{mean^i}{i!} e^{-mean} $ where $ mean $ is the parameter of the distribution.

_RealType std::poisson_distribution< _IntType, _RealType >::mean (  )  const [inline]

Gets the distribution parameter mean.

template<class _UniformRandomNumberGenerator >
poisson_distribution< _IntType, _RealType >::result_type std::poisson_distribution< _IntType, _RealType >::operator() ( _UniformRandomNumberGenerator &  __urng  )  [inline]

A rejection algorithm when mean >= 12 and a simple method based upon the multiplication of uniform random variates otherwise. NB: The former is available only if _GLIBCXX_USE_C99_MATH_TR1 is defined.
