Stochastic processes associated with a symmetric oscillatory poisson process

  • Alladi Ramakrishnan
  • P. M. Mathews


A symmetric oscillatory Poisson process is defined and its stochastic features studied. The process represented by the symbolic integral of this oscillatory Poisson process is then discussed in detail. The results obtained are applied to the well-known stochastic problem of multiple scattering of charged particles in their passage through matter.
