Phase-type distribution

This is the minimum hazard ratio for decreasing hazards. The hypoexponential distribution is a generalisation of the Erlang distribution by having different rates for each transition the non-homogeneous case. For a given number of phases, the Erlang distribution is the phase type distribution with smallest coefficient of variation.

Retrieved from ” https: This is the distribution of the time to reach state 3 in a continuous-time Markov model with three states and transitions permitted from state phass to state 2 with intensity lambda1 phaee 1 to state 3 intensity mu1 and state 2 to state 3 intensity mu2. Any distribution can be arbitrarily well approximated by a phase type distribution.

What can we improve? It is usually assumed the probability of process starting in the absorbing state is zero i. The Coxian distribution is extremely important as any acyclic phase-type distribution has an equivalent Coxian representation.


The continuous phase-type distribution is the distribution of time from the above process’s starting until absorption in the absorbing state. The parameter of the phase-type distribution are: Matrix Analytic methods in Stochastic Models. Approximating a deterministic distribution of time 1 with 10 phases, each of average length 0.

The phase-type representation is given by.

States 1 and 2 are the two “phases” and state 3 is the “exit” state. Degenerate Dirac delta function Singular Cantor. Journal of Statistical Software, vol. Views Read Edit View history. A phase-type distribution is a probability distribution constructed by a convolution or mixture of exponential distributions.

Phase-type distribution – Wikipedia

R Package Documentation rdrr. This process can be written in the form of a transition rate matrix. Analytical and Stochastic Modeling Techniques and Applications. This can be useful for choosing intuitively reasonable initial values for procedures to fit these models to data. Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Each of the states of the Markov process represents one of the phases. An R Package for Actuarial Science. However, the phase-type is a light-tailed or platykurtic distribution.

The actuar R package implements a general n-phase distribution defined by the time to absorption of a general continuous-time Markov chain with a single absorbing state, where the process starts in one of the transient states with a given probability. Instead of only being able to enter the absorbing state from state k it can be reached from any phase. You should contact the package authors for that.

It has a discrete time equivalent the discrete phase-type distribution. Circular compound Poisson elliptical exponential natural exponential location—scale maximum entropy mixture Pearson Tweedie wrapped.

The following probability distributions are all considered special cases of a continuous phase-type distribution:. Queueing Networks and Markov Chains. This page was last edited on 18 Octoberat Related to 2phase in msm Similarly to the exponential distributionthe class of PH distributions is closed under minima of independent random variables.

As the phase-type distribution is dense in the field of all positive-valued distributions, we can represent any positive valued distribution.
