Poisson random measure
i) is a Poisson random variable with rate .
iii) is a measure on
If then satisfies the conditions i)–iii). Otherwise, in the case of finite measure , given , a Poisson random variable with rate , and , mutually independent random variables with distribution , define where is a degenerate measure located in . Then will be a Poisson random measure. In the case is not finite the measure can be obtained from the measures constructed above on parts of where is finite.
