Barbour, A D; Brown, T; Xia, A (1998). Point processes in time and Stein's method. Stochastics and Stochastics Reports, 65(1-2):127-151.
This article gives an upper bound for a Wasserstein distance between the distribution of a simple point process and that of a Poisson process on the positive half line. The bound is partly expressed in terms of their compensators, and partly in terms of the expected future effect of having a point at a given time. The argument is based on Stein's method, together with a martingale approach. Some examples are provided, which illustrate the computation of the upper bound and demonstrate its accuracy.
