If one observes the process in non-overlapping intervals, the pertinent random variables have to be independent, which corresponds to the independence of the single observations Xi in the Bernoulli process – this leads to A4. – The main difference in the processes lies in the fundamental frequency pulsing: in the Bernoulli process, there is definitely a new experiment Xi at ‘time’ i whereas in the Poisson process time is continuously flowing with no apparent performing of an experiment (leading to an event or not) – events just occur.
