The space-fractional Poisson process
In this paper, we introduce the space-fractional Poisson process whose state probabilities pkα(t), t≥0, α∈(0,1], are governed by the equations (d/dt)pkα(t)=−λα(1−B)αpkα(t), where (1−B)α is the fractional difference operator found in the time series analysis. We explicitly obtain the distributions pkα(t), the probability generating functions Gα(u,t), which are also expressed as distributions of the minimum of i.i.d. uniform random variables. The comparison with the time-fractional Poisson process is investigated and finally, we arrive at the more general space–time-fractional Poisson process of which we give the explicit distribution.
