Fractional negative binomial and pólya processes

30 Jul 2018-Vol. 38, Iss: 1, pp 77-101
Abstract: In this paper, we define a fractional negative binomial process FNBP by replacing the Poisson process by a fractional Poisson process FPP in the gamma subordinated form of the negative binomial process. It is shown that the one-dimensional distributions of the FPP and the FNBP are not infinitely divisible. Also, the space fractional Polya process SFPP is defined by replacing the rate parameter λ by a gamma random variable in the definition of the space fractional Poisson process. The properties of the FNBP and the SFPP and the connections to PDEs governing the density of the FNBP and the SFPP are also investigated. more

Abstract: In this paper, we study the fractional Poisson process (FPP) time-changed by an independent Levy subordinator and the inverse of the Levy subordinator, which we call TCFPP-I and TCFPP-II, respectively. Various distributional properties of these processes are established. We show that, under certain conditions, the TCFPP-I has the long-range dependence property, and also its law of iterated logarithm is proved. It is shown that the TCFPP-II is a renewal process and its waiting time distribution is identified. The bivariate distributions of the TCFPP-II are derived. Some specific examples for both the processes are discussed. Finally, we present simulations of the sample paths of these processes. more

Abstract: In this paper, we introduce a space fractional negative binomial process (SFNB) by time-changing the space fractional Poisson process by a gamma subordinator. Its one-dimensional distributions are derived in terms of generalized Wright functions and their governing equations are obtained. It is a Levy process and the corresponding Levy measure is given. Extensions to the case of distributed order SFNB, where the fractional index follows a two-point distribution, are investigated in detail. The relationship with space fractional Polya-type processes is also discussed. Moreover, we define and study multivariate versions, which we obtain by time-changing a d-dimensional space-fractional Poisson process by a common independent gamma subordinator. Some applications to population’s growth and epidemiology models are explored. Finally, we discuss algorithms for the simulation of the SFNB process. more

Abstract: In this article, we introduce fractional Poisson felds of order k in n-dimensional Euclidean space $R_n^+$. We also work on time-fractional Poisson process of order k, space-fractional Poisson process of order k and tempered version of time-space fractional Poisson process of order k in one dimensional Euclidean space $R_1^+$. These processes are defined in terms of fractional compound Poisson processes. Time-fractional Poisson process of order k naturally generalizes the Poisson process and Poisson process of order k to a heavy tailed waiting times counting process. The space-fractional Poisson process of order k, allows on average infinite number of arrivals in any interval. We derive the marginal probabilities, governing difference-differential equations of the introduced processes. We also provide Watanabe martingale characterization for some time-changed Poisson processes. more

Abstract: A fractional non-Markov Poisson stochastic process has been developed based on fractional generalization of the Kolmogorov–Feller equation. We have found the probability of n arrivals by time t for fractional stream of events. The fractional Poisson process captures long-memory effect which results in non-exponential waiting time distribution empirically observed in complex systems. In comparison with the standard Poisson process the developed model includes additional parameter μ. At μ=1 the fractional Poisson becomes the standard Poisson and we reproduce the well known results related to the standard Poisson process. As an application of developed fractional stochastic model we have introduced and elaborated fractional compound Poisson process. more
