On a Generalization of the Binomial Distribution and Its Poisson-like Limit
E.M.F. Curado, J.-P. Gazeau1, L.M.C.S. Rodrigues

We examine a generalization of the binomial distribution associated with a strictly increasing sequence of numbers and we prove its Poisson-like limit. Such generalizations might be found in quantum optics with imperfect detection. We discuss under which conditions this distribution can have a probabilistic interpretation.
