Decay counts of polonium recorded by Rutherford and Geiger (1910).
This data frame contains the following columns:
a numeric vector, counts or frequencies
a numeric vector, the number of decays
These are the radioactive decay counts of polonium recorded by
Rutherford and Geiger (1910) representing the number of scintillations
in 2608 1/8 minute intervals. For example, there were 57 frequencies
of zero counts.
The counts can be thought of as being approximately Poisson distributed.
