Occupation time distributions for the telegraph process Academic Article


  • Stochastic Processes and their Applications


  • For the one-dimensional telegraph process, we obtain explicitly the distribution of the occupation time of the positive half-line. The long-term limiting distribution is then derived when the initial location of the process is in the range of subnormal or normal deviations from the origin; in the former case, the limit is given by the arcsine law. These limit theorems are also extended to the case of more general occupation-type functionals. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
