 Oct10 accepted Poisson Process Arrival Probability Oct10 comment Poisson Process Arrival Probability It's no question why you have so much reputation. Thank you. Oct10 awarded Critic Oct10 comment Poisson Process Arrival Probability Well, the homework's not graded and is solely for our benefit of understanding the material, so it wouldn't hurt. Also, it's 2 am here and I need sleep so I'll go with yes, please give an answer. Oct10 comment Poisson Process Arrival Probability Sorry, but I'm not really seeing where this is going. Care to elaborate a bit? Oct10 comment Poisson Process Arrival Probability I know that the expected value of the waiting time is $1/{\lambda}$. Is that what you're getting at? Oct10 comment Branching Process Extinction Probability This is great, thanks! Oct10 accepted Branching Process Extinction Probability Oct10 comment Branching Process Extinction Probability Scratch that--A little consideration of my own helped me understand it. Thanks! Oct10 comment Branching Process Extinction Probability This all makes sense up until you write up your equation. I can see how to apply it, but I'm not seeing why $$P(X_2 = 0, X_1 > 0) = P(X_2 = 0) - P(X_1 = 0).$$ Could you explain that?

That's exactly what I was looking for. Incidentally I was able to figure it out when I needed it, but thanks anyway!
