# Generating Poisson Distributions for a Fixed Number of Events

I’m wondering if there’s a straight forward way to generate a poisson distribution for a distribution for a fixed number of events. For example, I have a vector of means for a poisson distribution; something like this: B=[3, 5, 7, 9, 10] Each element in B is the mean number of events I can expect to observe in that bin when I model the data in each bin as a poisson distribution. If I want to simulate observations of this distribution I can use the command poissrnd: poissrnd(B) Which generates a random vector. I now want to generate observations but I’d like to have control over the total number of events that are observed. Is there a straight forward way to do that?

In order to have a pre-specified number of observations, you use the command

`a = poissrnd(b,n,m)`

where ‘b’ is an element of the ‘B’ vector you specified and ‘n x m’ is the dimension of the number of observations.

I understand that you want to do that directly to all the elements in ‘B’. You can define ‘B’ as a cell array and then use the ‘cellfun’ to apply ‘poissrnd’ function to each element in ‘B’ as follows:
