Product autoregressive models for non-negative variables
Balakrishna, N; Abraham, B
When variables in time series context are non-negative, such as for volatility, survival
time or wave heights, a multiplicative autoregressive model of the type Xt = Xα
t−1Vt ,
0 ≤ α < 1, t = 1, 2, . . . may give the preferred dependent structure. In this paper,
we study the properties of such models and propose methods for parameter estimation.
Explicit solutions of the model are obtained in the case of gamma marginal distribution

Some Aspects of Domain Specific Conceptual Modeling for Simulation of Logistic Terminal Operations
James, K C
When simulation modeling is used for
performance improvement studies of complex systems such as
transport terminals, domain specific conceptual modeling
constructs could be used by modelers to create structured
models. A two stage procedure which includes identification of
the problem characteristics/cluster - ‘knowledge acquisition’
and identification of standard models for the problem cluster –
‘model abstraction’ was found to be effective in creating
structured models when applied to certain logistic terminal
systems. In this paper we discuss some methods and examples
related the knowledge acquisition and model abstraction stages
for the development of three different types of model categories
of terminal systems

Quantile based stop-loss transform and its applications
Sunoj, S M; Unnikrishnan Nair, N; Sankaran, P G
Partial moments are extensively used in actuarial science for the analysis
of risks. Since the first order partial moments provide the expected loss in a stop-loss
treaty with infinite cover as a function of priority, it is referred as the stop-loss transform.
In the present work, we discuss distributional and geometric properties of the
first and second order partial moments defined in terms of quantile function. Relationships
of the scaled stop-loss transform curve with the Lorenz, Gini, Bonferroni and
Leinkuhler curves are developed

Quantile based reliability aspects of partial moments
Sunoj, S M; Unnikrishnan Nair, N; Sankaran, P G
Partial moments are extensively used in literature for modeling and analysis of lifetime
data. In this paper, we study properties of partial moments using quantile functions.
The quantile based measure determines the underlying distribution uniquely. We then
characterize certain lifetime quantile function models. The proposed measure provides
alternate definitions for ageing criteria. Finally, we explore the utility of the measure to
compare the characteristics of two lifetime distributions
