Poissons @user159813 No problem! It's a useful fact. Jul15 comment Expected maximum of a sequence of i.i.d. Poissons @user159813 Yes. The proof is easy (and is left as an exercise at the end of the blog post you linked to). Jul15 comment Expected maximum of a sequence of i.i.d. Poissons @user159813 For an integer-valued random variable, $\sum_{t=0}^{\infty} \mathrm{Pr}(X > t)= \mathbb E X$. Jul15 comment Expected maximum of a sequence of i.i.d. Poissons The expectation does tend to infinity, but I'm interested in its asymptotic growth. For instance, does it grow as $\Theta(\lg n)$, $\Theta(\lg \lg n)$, etc.?
