SOA #131
Hello!
I think I understand this problem for the most part. Just need a little help in understanding how the following formula was derived (in SOA solution): (1/lambda)*ln(1u) Is this supposed to be the inverse of the poisson pgf? Thank you!

Technically, #131 asks about a Poisson _Process_, and Poisson Processes are no longer on the syllabus. However, it could have just said that you were simulating a Poisson random variable and then it would be on the syllabus.

...I meant to say: Is this supposed to be the inverse of the poisson CDF?

Again, no. See my answer to your first post on #131.
