Abstract

A new characterization of the Marshall–Olkin distribution is provided: all sub-vectors of the associated survival indicators are continuous-time Markov chains. This property is crucial to overcome practical limitations for the modeling of high-dimensional default times (rebalancing, iterative simulation, consistent sub-portfolios).
