Could someone explain why the time interval ~ exp(theta =1/5)?

Which chapter of ASM covers this? Thanks!

It's actually an (a,b,0) multi decrements simulation. Since this is based off a poisson, the appropriate lambda is just lambda=5. then just plug this into s=-ln(1-u)/lambda where u is the uniform random number. The formula is on the first part of the ADAPT formula sheet if you have that

Hi, I think it's in Simulation - Special Techniques under Simulating (a,b,0) Distributions. Hope this helps!
