Expectation thinning operators based on linear fractional probability generating functions. (arXiv:1709.03129v1 [math.PR])

We introduce a two-parameter expectation thinning operator based on a linear fractional probability generating function. The operator is then used to define a first-order integer-valued autoregressive \inar1 process. Distributional properties of the \inar1 process are described. We revisit the Bernoulli-geometric \inar1 process of Bourguignon and Wei{\ss} (2017) and we introduce a new stationary \inar1 process with a compound negative binomial distribution. Lastly, we show how a proper randomization of our operator leads to a generalized notion of monotonicity for distributions on \bzp. 查看全文>>
