Shroff ECE & CSE Lectures 67 ECE & CSE Arrival Process or Counting Process Defnition: An arrival process or counting process is that stochastic process {N(t); t 0} such that: 1) N(0) = 0 2) N(t) is integer valued 3) N(t) is nondecreasing; i.e., if s t, then N(s) N(t). 4) For s<t, N(t +s) N(t) equals the number of events (or arrivals) in (s,t]. (right continuous property) Time N(t) t 1 t 2 t 3 ECE & CSE Poisson Process Defnition I: The arrival process {N(t), t 0} is said to be a Poisson Process with rate >0 , if 1) N(0) = 0 2) P{N(t) = 1 } = t + o(t) 3) P{N(t) 2} = o(t) 4) For any t 0, s 0, 1) N(t +s) N(t) is independent of {N(u): u t}. 2) This is known as the Independent Increments property. 5) For any t , s 0, the distribution of N(t+s) N(t) is independent of t. 1) This is known as the Stationary Increments property. ECE & CSE Poisson Process (Contd) Remember: A function f is said to be o(h) if Equivalent Denition II: The arrival process {N(t), t 0 } is said to be Poisson Process with rate , if 1) N(0) = 0 2) Independent Increments 3) The number of arrivals in any interval of length s is Poisson distributed with mean s, for all s, t 0. ) ( lim = h h f h ! ) ( n} N(t) s) P{N(t n s e n s = = + 2 ECE & CSE Independent Increments Property N(t + s) N(t) is independent of {N(u): u t}. Arrivals in the future (beyond time t) are independent of the entire past history up to time t ( very strong property )....
