probability distribution functions, such as exponential ones. In this paper we propose an approximation method, based on the Coxian distribution function. A Poisson random variable X with parameter µ has probability distribution . A random variable X has a Coxian distribution of order k if it has to go through up to . Evaluation of continuous phase–type distributions. . A discrete phase– type distribution is the distribution of the time to absorption in a.

The Coxian distribution is a generalisation of the hypoexponential distribution.

So the representation of heavy-tailed or leptokurtic distribution by phase type is an approximation, even if the precision of the approximation can be as good as we want.

I did the following calculations for the first part, and I’m fairly certain they are correct. Similarly to the exponential distributionthe class of PH distributions is closed under minima of independent random variables.

Instead of only being able to enter the absorbing state from state k it can be reached from any phase. Sign up using Email and Password. BuTools includes methods for generating samples from phase-type distributed random variables. This mixture of densities of exponential distributed random variables can be characterized through.

Phase-type distribution – Wikipedia

The probability density for value and distinct rates is a linear combination of exponentials for and zero for. The distribution can be represented by a random variable describing the time until absorption of a Markov process with one absorbing state.

The moments of the distribution function are given by. Please complete this field.

The set of phase-type distributions is dense in the field of all positive-valued distributions, that is, it can be used to approximate any positive-valued distribution. A description of this is here. The phase-type representation is given by. CopulaDistribution can be used to build higher-dimensional distributions that contain a Coxian distribution, and ProductDistribution can be used to compute a joint distribution with independent component distributions involving Coxian distributions.

This process can be written in the form of a transition rate matrix. Methods to fit a phase type distribution to data can be classified as maximum likelihood methods or moment matching methods. The generalised Coxian distribution relaxes the condition that requires starting in the first phase. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A phase-type distribution is a probability distribution constructed by a convolution or mixture of exponential distributions. Retrieved from ” https: The sequence in which each of the phases occur may itself be a stochastic process.


TransformedDistribution can be used to represent a transformed Coxian distribution, CensoredDistribution to represent the distribution of values censored between upper and lower values, and TruncatedDistribution to represent the distribution of values truncated between upper and lower values.

The following probability distributions are all considered special cases of a continuous phase-type distribution:. Enable JavaScript to interact with content and submit forms on Wolfram websites. In addition, the tails of the PDF are “thin” in the sense that the PDF decreases exponentially rather than decreasing algebraically for large values of.
