Question

What would be the corresponding interarrival times generated by a simulator for Exponential distribution with {eq}lambda =2,5,10

{/eq} arrivals/min?

EXPERT ANSWER

interarrival time = -ln(1 ? Random Number)/Lambda

let Random Number = 0.393469 (You can use any random number)

For Lambda = 2

Interarrival time = -ln(1-0.393469)/2 = 0.25000

For Lambda = 5

Interarrival time = -ln(1-0.393469)/5 = 0.10000

For Lambda = 10

Interarrival time = -ln(1-0.393469)/10 = 0.05000
