It is a trite but true remark to say that there are two fundamental random processes, one being the Poisson process and the other being Brownian motion. They are each fundamental in two ways; first, they do seem to describe much of the natural world very well, and second, the student is well-advised to study and master these two before going on to look at harder and more recondite processes. This note gives a brief glimpse of some aspects of the Poisson process, which is technically by far the…
