    We consider a sequence of n, n≥3, zero (0) - one (1) Markov-dependent trials. We focus on k-tuples of 1s; i.e. runs of 1s of length at least equal to a fixed integer number k, 1≤kn. The statistics denoting the n...

    Poisson-Tweedie mixtures are the Poisson mixtures for which the mixing measure is generated by those members of the family of Tweedie distributions whose support is non-negative. This class of non-negative int...

    The maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) of Gini-Simpson’s diversity index (GS) is widely used but suffers from large bias when the number of species is large or infinite. We propose a new estimator of the GS in...
