Abstract:

We study record times, mainly, and sizes in the following context. Let X sub n denote the size of the nth event occurring in a point stochastic pacing process, P the X sub n is i.i.d., and P is, variously, Poisson, negative binomial, renewal, and Furry. Explicit distributions of first record times are found, domains of abstraction studied, and the asymptotic lognormality of the nth record time is shown for Poisson P. Author
