We consider the inhomogeneous version of the fixed-point equation of the smoothing transformation, that is, the equation , where means equality in distribution, is a given sequence of non-negative random variables and is a sequence of i.i.d. copies of the non-negative random variable X independent of . In this situation, X (or, more precisely, the distribution of X) is said to be a fixed point of the (inhomogeneous) smoothing transform. In the present paper, we give a necessary and sufficient…
