This paper presents a new derivation of the Generalized Poisson distribution. The derivation is based on the barrier crossing statistics of random walks associated with the Poisson distribution. A simple interpretation of this model in terms of a single server queue is also included. In the astrophysical context, the Generalized Poisson distribution is interesting because it provides a good fit to the evolved, Eulerian counts-in-cells distribution measured in numerical simulations of… CONTINUE READING
