exponential distribution

n
(Statistics) statistics a continuous single-parameter distribution used esp when making statements about the length of life of certain materials or waiting times between randomly occurring events. Its density function is p(x) = λe–λx for positive λ and nonnegative x, and it is a special case of the gamma distribution

Therefore, the inter-meeting time between two nodes conforms to an exponential distribution with the parameter denoted by [lambda].
Three different p(S) are considered to demonstrate the power of the density function density g(S) : (1) the Pareto power law, (2) the exponential distribution, and (3) the two-parameter Weibull distribution.

The distribution of video content duration can be approximated by an exponential distribution [30].
which are the iid RVs from the standard exponential distribution (see Arnold et al.
We model the time points of the breaking of the tension wires with a point process where the waiting times for the next breaking of a tension wire follow an exponential distribution depending only on the number of wires which are broken before.
The Lindley distribution is a mixture of an exponential distribution with scale [lambda] and a gamma distribution with shape 2 and scale [lambda], where the mixing proportion is p = [lambda]/(1 + [lambda]).

Although there are no hard and fast rules on which test to use in a given situation, where there are no censored observations, the samples are from a Weibull or exponential distribution, and sample size is less than 50 per group, the Cox's F test is more powerful than Gehan's generalized Wilcoxon test.
