1. ### correcting with poisson regression

Hi everyone, I'm new to stats and I was wondering if anyone had any good resources that could explain to me: How one can correct their data (false-positives) using poisson-regression. I've been looking for some resources to explain it simply and give a step by step (in r ) but I've had...
2. ### Poisson distribution and muon decays

Hello, I have gathered muon decay data and used R's non linear least squares function to find the mean muon lifetime. I did this by taking the exponential part of the decay curve and solving for the inverse of the lifetime, where the function is Nt=N0(exp(-t/τ)+c. That bit is fine. The...
3. ### NFL Suicide Pools - statistical benefit of multiple entries

In suicide pools, each entrant picks one team to win each week, with no point spreads. If the team wins, the entrant continues to the next week. Once a team has been picked, that team cannot be picked again during the season. If the team loses, the entrant is eliminated from the pool. These...
