Decomposability for stable processes


  • Wang, Yizao
  • Stoev, Stilian A.
  • Roy, Parthanil


We characterize all possible independent symmetric α-stable (SαS) components of an SαS process, 0<α<2. In particular, we focus on stationary SαS processes and their independent stationary SαS components. We also develop a parallel characterization theory for max-stable processes.
