 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Given a Poisson distribution with parameter lambda, the median of the distribution is between lambda - log(2) and lambda + 1/3 (both sharp). This constant gives the width of this interval. Note that log(2) + 1/3 >= 1 so there is always at least one integer in the range. LINKS K. P.
