The following probability distributions are all considered special cases of a continuous phase-type distribution:. BuTools includes methods for generating samples from phase-type distributed random variables.

This is a special case of the n-phase Coxian phase-type distribution, which in turn is a special case of the general phase-type distribution. This mixture of densities of exponential distributed random variables can be characterized through.

However, the phase-type is a light-tailed or platykurtic distribution. Any distribution can be arbitrarily well approximated by a phase type distribution.

Phase-type distribution

This is the distribution of the time to reach state 3 in a continuous-time Markov model with three states cxoian transitions permitted from state 1 to state 2 with intensity lambda1 state 1 to state 3 intensity mu1 and state 2 to state 3 intensity mu2. Similarly to the exponential distributionthe class of PH distributions is closed under minima of independent random variables.

The distribution can be represented by a random variable describing the time phasse absorption of a Markov process with one absorbing state. Methods to fit a phase type distribution to data can be classified as maximum likelihood methods or moment matching methods.

An individual following this distribution can be seen as coming from a mixture of two populations:. Density, distribution, quantile functions and other utilities for the Coxian phase-type distribution with two phases. The page or its content looks wrong.

A phase-type distribution is a probability distribution constructed by a convolution or mixture of exponential distributions. The actuar R package implements a general n-phase distribution defined by the time to absorption of a general continuous-time Markov chain with a single absorbing state, where the process starts in one of the transient states with a given probability.

You should contact the package authors for that. This is the minimum hazard ratio for decreasing hazards. For more information on customizing the embed code, read Embedding Snippets. Journal of Statistical Software, vol. We want your feedback!

The moments of the distribution function are given by. The Coxian distribution is extremely important as any acyclic phase-type distribution has an equivalent Coxian representation. A description of this is here. It is usually assumed the probability of process starting in the absorbing state is zero i.


For a given number of phases, the Erlang distribution is the phase type distribution with smallest coefficient of variation. States 1 and 2 are the two “phases” and state 3 is the “exit” state. The continuous phase-type distribution is the distribution of time from the above process’s starting until absorption in the absorbing state. The sequence in which each of the phases occur may itself be a stochastic process.

An R Package for Actuarial Science. The set of phase-type distributions is dense in the field of all positive-valued distributions, that is, it can be used to approximate coxin positive-valued distribution.

The Coxian distribution is a generalisation of the hypoexponential distribution. The hypoexponential distribution is a generalisation of the Erlang distribution by having different rates for each transition the non-homogeneous case. The phase-type representation is given by.
