This article needs attention from an expert in Statistics. The specific problem is: the article lacks a definition, illustrative examples, but is of importance (Poisson process, Lévy process)..WikiProject Statistics (or its Portal) may be able to help recruit an expert.(December 2013)
A jump process is a type of stochastic process that has discrete movements, called jumps, rather than small continuous movements.
In physics, jump processes result in diffusion. On a microscopic level, they are described by jump diffusion models.
