Renewal Experiment

Timeline
Distribution graph

Description

The experiment is to run a renewal process until time \(t\). The arrivals are shown as red dots on a timeline, and the random variable of interest is the number of arrivals \(N\). The value of \(N\) is recorded on each update in the data table. Also on each update, the empirical density function and moments are shown in red in the distribution graph and recorded in the distribution table. The interarrival distribution can be selected from the drop-down box; the choices are

In each case, the parameters can be set with the input controls, and the mean of the interarrival distribution is shown. The time parameter \( t \) can also be varied with the input control.
