A triptych of discrete distributions related to the stable law

Abstract

We derive useful distributional representations for three discrete laws: the discrete stable distribution of Steutel and Van Harn, the discrete Linnik distribution introduced by Pakes, and a distribution of Sibuya. These representations may be used to obtain simple uniformly fast random variate generators.
