about

Infinite Divisibility of Probability Distributions on the Real Line reassesses classical theory and presents new developments, while focusing on divisibility with respect to convolution or addition of independent random variables. This definitive, example-rich text supplies approximately 100 examples to correspond with all major chapter topics and reviews infinite divisibility in light of the central limit problem. It contrasts infinite divisibility with finite divisibility, discusses the preservation of infinite divisibility under mixing for many classes of distributions, and investigates self-decomposability and stability on the nonnegative reals, nonnegative integers, and the reals.

Editorial Reviews

"The two authors have come up with a rather complete, very detailed and self-contained survey of the state of the art around the theory and applications of univariate infinite divisibility. All important properties are collected [in this book]. An important plus for this book is the rich variety of examples throughout the whole text. The monograph will certainly become the standard reference work on this fundamental concept." - Short Book Reviews of the ISI
