Under the in ̄uence of randomly occurring disasters, the eventual extinction probability, q, of a birth and death process, Z, is a random variable. In this paper, we obtain an integral expression for the probability density function g…x† of q under the assumption that the population process Z is a time homogeneous linear birth and death process and the… (More)
