### Abstract

A multivariate Markov modulated Poisson process M(t) = [M_{1}(t),...,M_{K}(t)] governed by a Markov chain {J(t):t ≥ 0} on N = {0, 1,...,N} is introduced where jumps of M_{k}(t) occur according to a Poisson process with intensity λ(k, i) whenever the Markov chain J(t) is in state i, 1 ≤ k ≤ K, 0 ≤ i ≤ N. Of interest to the paper is the time-dependent joint distribution of the multivariate process [M(t), J(t)]. In particular, the Laplace transform generating function is explicitly derived and its probabilistic interpretation is given. Asymptotic expansions of the cross moments and covariance functions of M(t) are also discussed.

N2 - A multivariate Markov modulated Poisson process M(t) = [M1(t),...,MK(t)] governed by a Markov chain {J(t):t ≥ 0} on N = {0, 1,...,N} is introduced where jumps of Mk(t) occur according to a Poisson process with intensity λ(k, i) whenever the Markov chain J(t) is in state i, 1 ≤ k ≤ K, 0 ≤ i ≤ N. Of interest to the paper is the time-dependent joint distribution of the multivariate process [M(t), J(t)]. In particular, the Laplace transform generating function is explicitly derived and its probabilistic interpretation is given. Asymptotic expansions of the cross moments and covariance functions of M(t) are also discussed.
