A nonparametric technique for estimating the cumulative intensity function of a nonhomogeneous Poisson process from one or more realizations on an interval is extended here to include realizations that overlap. This technique does not require any arbitrary parameters from the modeler, and the estimated cumulative intensity function can be used to generate a point process for simulation by inversion. 
Nonparametric estimation for a nonhomogeneous Poisson process
In the setting of discrete-event simulation, a well-known heuristic for estimating the rate function or cumulative rate function of a nonhomogeneous Poisson process assumes that the rate function isExpand

This work investigates the asymptotic behavior of this estimator in the case of equal interval widths, and shows that it can be transformed into a consistent estimator if the interval lengths shrink at an appropriate rate as the amount of data grows. Expand
TECHNICAL NOTE: Nonparametric estimation and variate generation for a nonhomogeneous Poisson process from event count data
Given a finite time horizon that has been partitioned into subintervals over which event counts have been accumulated for multiple realizations of a population NonHomogeneous Poisson Process (NHPP),Expand
On modeling nonhomogeneous Poisson process for stochastic simulation input analysis
This paper proposes a Likelihood Ratio Test (LRT) based method to detect multiple change points when observations follow non-stationary Poisson process with diverse occurrence rates over time and results from a comprehensive Monte Carlo study indicate satisfactory performance. Expand
Remarks on model-based estimation of nonhomogeneous Poisson processes and applications to biological systems
An approach based on observers and Kalman filters as well as preliminary simulation results are described, and these are compared to other methods (not model-based) in the literature. Expand
Strong Consistency and Asymptotic Distribution of Estimator for the Intensity Function Having Form of Periodic Function Multiplied by Power Function Trend of a Poisson Process
This manuscript discusses the strong consistency and the asymptotic distribution of an estimator for a periodic component of the intensity function having a form of periodic function multiplied byExpand
Modeling and Simulation of Nonstationary Non-Poisson Arrival Processes
We develop CIATA, a combined inversion-and-thinning approach for modeling a nonstationary non-Poisson process (NNPP), where the target arrival process is described by a given rate function and its ...
Modeling clustered non-stationary Poisson processes for stochastic simulation inputs
This paper answers the question whether a sequence of observations from a process follow the same statistical distribution, and if not, where the exact change points are, so that observations within two consecutive change points following the same distribution. Expand
We consider data processing for a Nonhomogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) with Log-linear and Power-law intensity functions. Parameter estimation is carried out by the maximum likelihood method. ForExpand
Testing Homogeneity for Poisson Processes
We developed an asymptotically optimal hypothesis test concerning the homogeneity of a Poisson process over various subintervals. Under the null hypothesis, maximum likelihood estimators for theExpand

A time-varying Poisson arrival process generator
This note uses inversion to derive a time-varying Poisson generator whose rate function is continuous and piecewise-linear, providing a useful new input process while promoting variance reduction through common and antithetic variates. Expand
Hazard plotting of left truncated life data
Some life data contain groups of units that were not observed before some age. Then the number and ages of earlier failures are not known. Such data are called truncated (on the left). This paperExpand

The effectiveness of the extended run-in over the original test as displayed by the field data was studied using several nonparametric methods (raw rate of occurrence of failure, Barlow's method, Nelson's mean cumulative number of failures), the parametric nonhomogeneous Poisson process, and a graphical exploratory analysis technique (correspondence analysis).
