Hi all,
  So far I only know one way to get the confidence limit for the Poisson distribution is to use the look-up table given by the 2 parameter (the number of observation x and the confidence level, e.g. 95%) and the table is limit by the maximum number of observations (x <= 50).   I know the formula to compute the CI, however, mathematically it is not
easy to do it. So, anyone know an R function to do this. Thanks

Tuan.
