I'd like to use the RandomArray to produce some data from what I think is a Poisson distribution in t P[t] = a^2 t Exp[-a*t] where a is mean, sigma. I see one can use RandomArray to produce sample data from a lot of continuous distributions but the Poisson isn't among them (it's only available in the discrete form). I've made a bunch of crippled attempts to force my P[t] to put out examples but have failed. Any suggestions? Thanks.
