Paper Abstract

Using Burgess's variance theorem, it is shown that at binomial transitional characteristics, variances of photons and photoelectrons have identical functional form when photons have negative-binomial or Poisson distribution function. By direct calculation it is obtained that in this cases photoelectrons distribution function reproduces that of photons that is photoelectrons distribution function has negative-binomial or Poisson form.
