The use of properties of a Poisson process to study the randomness of stars is traced back to a 1767 paper. The process was used and rediscovered many times, and we mention some of the early scientific areas. The name Poisson process was first used in print in 1940, and we believe the term was coined in the corridors of Stockholm University some time between 1936 and 1939. We follow the early developments of doubly stochastic processes and cluster processes, and describe different efforts to… 
Notes on stochastic processes Paul Keeler
A stochastic process is a type of mathematical object studied in mathematics, particularly in probability theory, which can be used to represent some type of random evolution or change of a system.
A note on the history of the Poisson process
This note reviews how the contemporary concept of the Poisson process (sometimes called the Poisson random measure) evolved through out the time up to recent times. That is from F. Lundberg and W.
Notes on stochastic processes
A stochastic process is a type of mathematical object studied in mathematics, particularly in probability theory, which shows some type of a randomness. There are many types of stochastic processes
A Variational Inference Approach to Learning Multivariate Wold Processes
This work develops a computationally efficient variational inference algorithm that allows scaling up the approach to high-dimensional processes and long sequences of observations and shows that the proposed algorithm outperforms existing methods.
Fast Estimation of Causal Interactions using Wold Processes
This work is the first to explore the use of Wold processes and is able to develop asymptotically fast MCMC learning algorithms, which is the only one able to train models for larger, full, sets of data.
Theory of Spatial Statistics
Theory of Spatial Statistics: A Concise Introduction presents the most important models used in spatial statistics from a rigorous mathematical point of view and shows how to carry out statistical inference.

In this work, a con resistant trust algorithm is applied to detect deception and the results of the detection are compared with a comparable computational trust algorithm, which reveals that the con resistantTrust algorithm provides the best results.
Kansen in ruimte en tijd
In de ruimtelijke stochastiek wordt de invloed onderzocht van verklarende variabelen (ook wel ‘covariaten’ genoemd) op een ruimtelijk patroon. Denk bijvoorbeeld, bij de gaswinning in Groningen, aan


Further results for Gauss-Poisson processes
This work determines necessary and sufficient conditions on these measures for the resulting point process to be well defined, and proceeds to a systematic study of its properties, which include stationarity, ergodicity, and infinite divisibility.
On stationary point processes and Markov chains
Abstract Introductory. In the theory of random processes we may distinguish between ordinary processes and point processes. The former are concerned with a quantity, say x (t), which varies with time

A wide class of stochastic processes, called regenerative, is defined, and it is shown that under general conditions the instantaneous probability distribution of such a process tends with time to a
The Spectral Analysis of Point Processes
The spectral analysis of stationary point processes in one dimension is developed in some detail as a statistical method of analysis. The asymptotic sampling theory previously established by the
The term 'point processes ', referring to stochastic processes in which events occur at more or less irregular intervals and which are represented by points on the time-axis, is of comparatively

In this paper we discuss a counter system whose output is a stochastic point process such that the time intervals between pairs of successive events form a first order Markov chain. Such processes

A sequence of finite point processes {Pn } is constructed in using a Markov sequence of points. Essentially, in the process Pn consisting of n events, the coordinates of these events are simply the
Markov Properties for Point Processes on the Plane
It is proved that for a wide class of point processes indexed by the positive quadrant of the plane, and for a class of compact sets in this quadrant, the germ σ-field is equal to the σ-field

Summary. In this paper we discuss higher-order and non-stationary properties of LAM-PAED'S (1968) stochastic reversible counter model whose output is a stochastic point process with MABKOV dependent
