Statistical inference for a class of modified power series distributions with applications to random mapping theory
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
We investigate a class of discrete distributions generated by expanding a parametric function in a Lagrange series. There is a close relationship to the class of generalized Poisson distributions, and special cases of our class of distributions arise in the context of random mapping theory. Unbiased estimation is discussed and the results are applied to inference problems in connection with two random mapping models. Umbral notation and a class of combinatorial numbers is used throughout.
