Explicit formulae are obtained for the distribution of various random partitions of a positive integer n, both ordered and unordered, derived from the zero set M of a Brownian motion by the following scheme: pick n points uniformly at random from [0, 1], and classify them by whether they fall in the same or different component intervals of the complement of M. Corresponding results are obtained for M the range of a stable subordinator and for bridges defined by conditioning on 1 E M. These…

Results are obtained concerning the distribution of ranked relative lengths of excursions of a recurrent Markov process from a point in its state space whose inverse local time process is a stable
Diffusions on a space of interval partitions: Poisson–Dirichlet stationary distributions
We construct a pair of related diffusions on a space of interval partitions of the unit interval $[0,1]$ that are stationary with the Poisson-Dirichlet laws with parameters (1/2,0) and (1/2,1/2)
Regeneration in random combinatorial structures
Kingman’s theory of partition structures relates, via a natural sampling procedure, finite partitions to hypothetical infinite populations. Explicit formulas for distributions of such partitions
