As indicated in the KIF model (Figure 3), there are also several inter-space processes. We call these processes collectively the “edge processes” which are of critical importance in knowledge works.
On challenges and opportunities of designing integrated IT platforms for supporting knowledge works in organizations
We also study the connections between iteration and product of random processes by exploiting the properties of the generalized Gamma processes, such a study allows us to obtain some striking result about the compositions of the Cauchy processes or fractional Brownian motions.
Generalized Gamma Process: some results about composition and subordination
In place of the process Γ(t), t > 0 we will consider, throughout the paper, the processes ˜Gγ (t), t > 0 and Gγ (t), t > 0 which are slightly different from the process Γ(t), t > 0 discussed previously.
Generalized Gamma Process: some results about composition and subordination
We are interested in the study of the generalized Gamma processes ˜Gγ (t), t > 0 and Gγ (t), t > 0 because they generalize a lot of well-known processes as the Brownian motion, the Bessel process starting from the origin, the exponential process and so on.
Generalized Gamma Process: some results about composition and subordination
Construction 2.1 can be used to derive a Poisson process approximation, with respect to the total variation distance, for the point process ΞM defined in (1.2), where the target Poisson point process ΘM on ΓM has intensity λM = (EXα , α ∈ ΓM ).

Definition 2.4 An H –valued stochastic process {W (t), t ≥ 0}, given on a filtered probability space (Ω, F , P, {Ft )} is cal led a Q–Wiener process with respect to {Ft } if for every non–zero h ∈ H , (cid:8)hQh, hi− 1 2 hW (t), hi, {Ft }(cid:9)t≥0 is a one–dimensional standard Wiener process.
Uniform Large deviations for infinite dimensional stochastic systems with jumps
Most continuous-time processes proposed in the l iterature belong to one of two large families: real-valued processes which can be written as solutions to stochastic differential equations [20, 27] and discrete-valued processes de fined via counting processes [9, 30, 8] or Markov chains .
Compound Markov counting processes and their applications to modeling infinitesimally over-dispersed systems
In this paper, we focus on the intersection between counting processes and Markov processes, namely Markov counting processes (MCPs from this point onward).
Compound Markov counting processes and their applications to modeling infinitesimally over-dispersed systems
The counting process is said to count events each of which has an associated event time. A counting process is simple if, with probability one, there is no time at which two or more events occur simultaneously. A process which is not simple is called compound.
Compound Markov counting processes and their applications to modeling infinitesimally over-dispersed systems
Corollaries 3 and 4 point out that the linear death process (or rather, the counting process associated with it) and the linear birth process, both extensively studied and used in applications, are also seen to be in finitesimally over dispersed.

Dispersion of mixed Markov counting processes The mixed Poisson process in Daley and Vere-jones , which Snyder and Miller call P ´olya process, is a natural extension of the Poisson process where a mixing random variable M is used as the rate to de fine a Poisson process conditional on M .
Compound Markov counting processes and their applications to modeling infinitesimally over-dispersed systems
From an alternative perspective, in the context of the general theory of Markov processes, random time change or subordination of an initial process is a well established tool to obtain new processes.
