Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for Representing General Distributions by Coxians

Abstract

A common analytical technique involves using a Coxian distribution to model a general distribution G, where the Coxian distribution agrees with G on the first three moments. This technique is motivated by the analytical tracability of the Coxian distribution. Algorithms for mapping an input distribution G to a Coxian distribution largely hinge on knowing a… (More)
