Mittag-Leffler vector random fields with Mittag-Leffler direct and cross covariance functions
Ma, Chunsheng. 2013. Mittag-Leffler vector random fields with Mittag-Leffler direct and cross covariance functions. Annals of the Institute of Statistical Mathematics, v.65:no.5:pp.941-958
In terms of the two-parameter Mittag-Leffler function with specified parameters, this paper introduces the Mittag-Leffler vector random field through its finite-dimensional characteristic functions, which is essentially an elliptically contoured one and reduces to a Gaussian one when the two parameters of the Mittag-Leffler function equal 1. Having second-order moments, a Mittag-Leffler vector random field is characterized by its mean function and its covariance matrix function, just like a Gaussian one. In particular, we construct direct and cross covariances of Mittag-Leffler type for such vector random fields.
