Random self-decomposability and autoregressive processes

  • Mathematics


We introduce the notion of random self-decomposability and discuss its relation to the concepts of self-decomposability and geometric infinite divisibility. We present its connection with time series autoregressive schemes with a regression coefficient that randomly turns on and off. In particular, we provide a characterization of random self-decomposability as well as that of marginal distributions of stationary time series that follow this scheme. Our results settle an open question related to the existence of such processes.
