Confidence level on excluded lifetime of decay

Suppose, the count rate of the decay process is a random variable $Y$, which is distributed as $Pois(\lambda)$. Because $\lambda$ is the decay rate, we know that on average we get $\mu_{counts} = \...

Confidence level on excluded lifetime of decay

A sketch of the process might be as follows: If you have some decay process with a an exponential decay timescale of $\tau$ and you set up an experiment that lasts $t$ seconds (where $t \ll \tau$), ...
