Comparison of different Poisson arrival process generators. The dashed black curve represents the input light curve. The red curve displays the simulated photon rate using a simple algorithm implementing Eq. (2) with R = r(ti−1). The blue curve is based on the algorithm introduced by Klein & Roberts (1984), which avoids the delay of the increasing photon rate for steeply rising profiles.
