Seite 10 Example 1. Discrete and absolutely continuous distributions with the same chacteristic functions on [-1, 1]

11
Seite 11 Example 2. The absolute value of a characteristic function is not necessarily a characteristic function.

12
Seite 12 Decomposable and Indecomposable We say that a ch.f. ϕ is decomposable if it can be represented as a product of two non-trivial ch.f.s. ϕ 1 and ϕ 2, i.e. ϕ(t) = ϕ 1 (t) ϕ 2 (t) and neither ϕ 1 nor ϕ 2 is the ch.f. of a probability measure which is concentrated at one point. Otherwise ϕ is called indecomposable.

13
Seite 13 Example 3. The factorization of a characteristic function into indecomposable factors may not be unique. (i)discrete case X : discrete uniform distribution on the set {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5}. Characteristic function of X : We can factorize the ch. f. in the following way :

Seite 18 Definition (infinitely divisible distribution) ∙ X : a r.v. with d.f. F ∙ ϕ : ch.f. of X ∙ X is called infinitely divisible if for each n≥1 there exist i.i.d. r.v.s X n1,..., X nn such that X X n1 + ∙∙∙ + X nn Equivalent : ∙ Ǝ d.f. F n with F=(F n ) *n ∙ Ǝ ch.f. ϕ n with ϕ =( ϕ n ) n

19
Seite 19 Definition (stable distribution) ∙ X : a r.v. with d.f. F ∙ ϕ : ch.f. of X ∙ X is called stable if for X 1 and X 2 independent copies of X and any positive numbers b 1 and b 2, there is a positive number b and a real number γ s.t. : b 1 X 1 +b 2 X 2 bX + γ Equivalent :

20
Seite 20 Properties of infinitely divisible and stable distributions The ch.f. of an infinitely divisible r.v. does not vanish. If a r.v. X is stable, then it is infinitely divisible.

21
Seite 21 Example 4. A non-vanishing characteristic function which is not infinitely divisible random variable X => => ϕ does not vanish. X01 P(X=x)1/83/41/8

22
Seite 22 Example 4. A non-vanishing characteristic function which is not infinitely divisible Is X infinitely divisible? Assume X X 1 +X 2, (X 1, X 2 are iid r.v.s) Since X has three possible values, each of X 1 and X 2 can take only two values, say a and b, a
