  journal={Applied Stochastic Models and Data Analysis},
SUMMARY In this paper a stochastic innovation di⁄usion model is proposed derived by introducing stochasticity into the well-known Bass model. The stochastic model is solved analytically by using the theory of reducible stochastic di⁄erential equations and the first moment of the resulting stochastic process is presented. The parameter estimators of the model are derived by using a procedure which provides the maximum likelihood estimators (MLE) using time series data. Finally, the model is… Expand
