The parameter of the phase-type distribution are: The following probability distributions are all considered special cases of a continuous phase-type distribution:. The distribution can be represented by a random variable describing the time until absorption of a Markov process with one absorbing state.

Phase-type distribution

The Coxian distribution is a generalisation of the distribition distribution. Methods to fit a phase type distribution to data can be classified as maximum likelihood methods or moment matching methods. The phase-type representation is given by.

You should contact the package authors for that. It has a discrete time equivalent the discrete phase-type distribution. The hypoexponential distribution is a generalisation of the Erlang distribution by having different rates for each transition the non-homogeneous case.


The sequence in which each of the phases occur may itself be a stochastic process. Modelling Techniques and Tools.

BuTools includes methods for generating samples from phase-type distributed random variables.

I have a suggestion. However, the phase-type is a light-tailed or platykurtic distribution. The Coxian distribution is extremely important as any acyclic phase-type distribution has an equivalent Coxian representation.

This mixture of densities of exponential distributed pbase variables can be characterized through. Mathematical Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society. Performance Modeling and Design of Computer Systems. Data Structures and Algorithms for Relations meetupapi: 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.

Approximating a deterministic distribution of time 1 with 10 phases, each of average length 0. Add the following code to your website. This can be useful for choosing intuitively reasonable initial values for procedures to fit these models to data.

Circular compound Poisson elliptical exponential natural exponential location—scale maximum entropy mixture Pearson Tweedie wrapped. This distribuion can be written in the form of a transition rate matrix.

Scandinavian Journal of Statistics. A description of this is here. An individual following this distribution can be seen as coming from a mixture of two populations:.

Note that we can’t provide technical support on individual packages. As the phase-type distribution is dense in the field of all positive-valued distributions, we can represent any positive valued distribution. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
