Tempered stable laws as random walk limits

Preprint English OPEN
Chakrabarty, Arijit; Meerschaert, Mark M.;
  • Subject: Mathematics - Probability

Stable laws can be tempered by modifying the L\'evy measure to cool the probability of large jumps. Tempered stable laws retain their signature power law behavior at infinity, and infinite divisibility. This paper develops random walk models that converge to a tempered ... View more
