Abstract:

Using a new approach, an extended version of Spitzers integral representation for stationary measures of a discrete branching process is obtained. This result is used to provide a complete solution to a problem in damage models satisfying a generalized Rao-Rubin condition. Additional keywords Cauchy equation potential theory Markov chains.
