  • Since the poisson distribution is assumed $\sigma ^2 = N_{PE} = \mu$.

  • $y_i$ is the observed value, $f(y_i,a,b,c)$ is the expected values, $\sigma$ is the error.
  • Since the poisson distribution is assumed $\sigma ^2 = N_{PE} = \mu$ where $\mu$ is the gaussian mean.
 
  • Therefore if it is a poisson distribution, the equation below is true.
 \begin{equation} \sigma=\sqrt{\mu} \end{equation}
