Stein's method for compound Poisson approximation: The local approach


Roos, Malgorzata (1994). Stein's method for compound Poisson approximation: The local approach. Annals of Applied Probability, 4(4):1177-1187.

Abstract

In the present paper, compound Poisson approximation by Stein's method is considered. A general theorem analogous to the local approach for Poisson approximation is proved. It is then applied to a reliability problem involving the number of isolated vertices in the rectangular lattice on the torus.
