On Characterizing Some Discrete Distributions Using an Extension of the Rao-Rubin Theorem
In a recent paper, Shanbhag (1977) uses an elementary approach from renewal theory to give an extension of a characterization of the Poisson law by Rao-Rubin (1964). In the present paper, a variant of Shanbhag's result is introduced. Using Shanbhag's and this result, several characterizations of truncated and untruncated distributions are obtained
