I'm reading a paper that uses a Poisson process to model real world events. The authors mention "finite window effects". What are finite window effects?
Here is quote from the paper where the authors first mention the term:
If the data come from a Poisson process, then a histogram of inter-event times will be roughly uniform when looking at a short inter-event time window due to minimal ﬁnite window eﬀects. This is because, with an inﬁnite window, inter-event times from a Poisson process are uniformly distributed.
