Statistical analysis of the inhomogeneous telegrapher's process
We consider a problem of estimation for the telegrapher's process on the line, say X(t), driven by a Poisson process with non-constant rate. The finite-dimensional law of the process X(t) is a solution to the telegraph equation with non-constant coefficients. We present the explicit law (P[theta]) of the process X(t) for a parametric class of intensity functions for the Poisson process. This is one rare example where an explicit law can be obtained. We propose further, an estimator for the parameter [theta] of P[theta] and we discuss its properties as a first attempt to apply statistics to these models.
