##### Generate Random Numbers of Points for Cell Process

Generates random integers for the Baddeley-Silverman counterexample.

- Keywords
- datagen

##### Usage

`rcellnumber(n, N = 10)`

##### Arguments

- n
- Number of random integers to be generated.
- N
- Distributional parameter: the largest possible value. An integer greater than 1.

##### Details

This function generates random integers which have mean and variance equal to 1, but which do not have a Poisson distribution. The random integers take the values $0$, $1$ and $N$ with probabilities $1/N$, $(N-2)/(N-1)$ and $1/(N(N-1))$ respectively. See Baddeley and Silverman (1984).

##### Value

- An integer vector of length
`n`

.
