On a Method of Introducing Free-Infinitely Divisible Probability Measures

Zbigniew J. Jurek
Published Online: 2016-05-31 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/dema-2016-0020


Random integral mappings give isomorphism between the subsemigroups of the classical (I D, *) and the free-infinite divisible (I D, ⊞) probability measures. This allows us to introduce new examples of such measures, more precisely their corresponding characteristic functionals.

Keywords: classical infinite divisibility; free infinite divisibility Lévy-Khintchine formula; Nevanlinna-Pick formula; characteristic (Fourier) functional; Voiculescu transform
