A shot process by burst properties

  • James H. Gilchrist (a1) and John B. Thomas (a1)


A shot process with bursts of events is constructed using an occurrence time structure similar to that of clustering point processes. The characteristic function and a simple functional form for the power spectral density of the process are found. It is shown that the burst property might not be observable. Applications of a specific example of this process are given in modeling a 1/f noise commonly found in some electronic components.
