Abstract

Univariate discrete Laplace models are described and investigated. A more general mixture model is represented.
Bivariate extensions of these models are discussed in some detail, with particular emphasis on associated
parameter estimation strategies. Multivariate versions of the models are briefly introduced.

Keywords

Discrete laplace, asymmetric discrete laplace, generalized asymmetric discrete laplace, bivariate discrete laplace, likelihood, method of moments
