On free infinite divisibility for classical Meixner distributions

  title={On free infinite divisibility for classical Meixner distributions},
  author={Marek Bożejko and Takahiro Hasebe},
  journal={arXiv: Probability},
We prove that symmetric Meixner distributions, whose probability densities are proportional to $|\Gamma(t+ix)|^2$, are freely infinitely divisible for $0<t\leq\frac{1}{2}$. The case $t=\frac{1}{2}$ corresponds to the law of L\'evy's stochastic area whose probability density is $\frac{1}{\cosh(\pi x)}$. A logistic distribution, whose probability density is proportional to $\frac{1}{\cosh^2(\pi x)}$, is freely infinitely divisible too.

Free infinite divisibility for powers of random variables

We prove that $X^r$ follows a free regular distribution, i.e. the law of a nonnegative free L\'evy process if: (1) $X$ follows a free Poisson distribution without an atom at 0 and

Classical scale mixtures of Boolean stable laws

We study Boolean stable laws, $\mathbf{b}_{\alpha,\rho}$, with stability index $\alpha$ and asymmetry parameter $\rho$. We show that the classical scale mixture of $\mathbf{b}_{\alpha,\rho}$

On freely quasi-infinitely divisible distributions

Inspired by the notion of quasi-infinite divisibility (QID), we introduce and study the class of freely quasi-infinitely divisible (FQID) distributions on R, i.e. distributions which admit the free

Free infinite divisibility for beta distributions and related distributions

We prove that many of beta, beta prime, gamma, inverse gamma, Student t- and ultraspherical distributions are freely infinitely divisible, but some of them are not. The latter negative result follows

Elements in a noncommutative operator algebra can be regarded as noncommutative random variables from a probabilistic viewpoint. Such understanding has its origin in quantum theory. Theory of

Abstract Random integral mappings give isomorphism between the subsemigroups of the classical (I D, *) and the free-infinite divisible (I D, ⊞) probability measures. This allows us to introduce new

Fock space associated with quadrabasic Hermite orthogonal polynomials

This paper introduces a new idea for constructing operators associated with a certain class of probability measures. Special cases include several know classical and noncommutative probability. The

Classical and free infinite divisibility for Boolean stable laws

We completely determine the free infinite divisibility for the Boolean stable law which is parametrized by a stability index $\alpha$ and an asymmetry coefficient $\rho$. We prove that the Boolean

We study the freely infinitely divisible distributions that appear as the laws of free subordinators. This is the free analog of classically infinitely divisible distributions supported on

On a class of explicit Cauchy–Stieltjes transforms related to monotone stable and free Poisson laws

We consider a class of probability measures $\mu_{s,r}^{\alpha}$ which have explicit Cauchy-Stieltjes transforms. This class includes a symmetric beta distribution, a free Poisson law and some beta

We prove that the integral powers of the semicircular distribution are freely infinitely divisible. As a byproduct we get another proof of the free infnite divisibility of the classical Gaussian

Lévy Processes

Lévy processes are random processes on Euclidean space that are stochastically continuous and have stationary independent increments. They, and their stochastic integrals, have become useful tools in
