From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In probability theory, a Cox process, also known as a doubly stochastic Poisson process is a point process which is a generalization of a Poisson process where the time-dependent intensity is itself a stochastic process. The process is named after the statistician David Cox, who first published the model in 1955.[1]

Cox processes are used to generate simulations of spike trains (the sequence of action potentials generated by a neuron),[2] and also in financial mathematics where they produce a "useful framework for modeling prices of financial instruments in which credit risk is a significant factor."[3]


Let be a random measure.

A random measure is called a Cox process directed by , if is a Poisson process with intensity measure .

Here, is the conditional distribution of , given .

Laplace transform

If is a Cox process directed by , then has the Laplace transform

for any positive, measurable function .
