Poisson and Normal Distributions
The Poisson distribution is of great importance in theory and in practice. It has the added virtue of being a simple mathematical object. We could have introduced it at an earlier stage in the book, and the reader was alerted to this in §4.4. However, the belated entrance will give it more prominence, as well as a more thorough discussion than would be possible without the benefit of the last two chapters.
