We contribute to the discussion of the paper by Devroye and James, by reviewing some of the most meaningful results that relate the unilateral stable distribution with the asymptotic behavior of the so-called Ewens-Pitman sampling model. Our focus is then on how these results have been exploited...
This paper provides the construction in a Bayesian setting of the Fleming-Viot measurevalued process with diploid fertility selection and highlights new connections between Bayesian nonparametrics and population genetics. Via a generalisation of the Blackwell-MacQueen Polya-urn scheme, a Markov...
In this paper a widely-studied model in Population Genetics, the so-called Infinitely- Many-Alleles model with neutral mutation, is reinterpreted in terms of a timedependent Bayesian nonparametric statistical model, where the prior of the model is described by the Neutral Fleming-Viot process. A...
The present paper provides a review of the results concerning distributional properties of means of random probability measures. Our interest in this topic has originated from inferential problems in Bayesian Nonparametrics. Nonetheless, it is worth noting that these random quantities play an...
The distribution of unemployment duration in our equilibrium matching model with spell-dependent unemployment benefits displays a time-varying exit rate. Building on Semi-Markov processes, we translate these exit rates into an expression for the aggregate unemployment rate. Structural estimation...

Maintenance helps to extend equipment life by improving its condition and avoiding catastrophic failures. Appropriate model or mechanism is, thus, needed to quantify system availability vis-a-vis a given maintenance strategy, which will assist in decision-making for optimal utilization of...
