Note on type II counter problem. (English) Zbl 0545.60094

The basic problem in the counter theory is to determine the distribution function of the distance between two successive registered particles if the distribution function of the primary process, distribution of impulses and the counter type are known. Our main aim in this note is to determine the joint Laplace transform of the above mentioned distribution, and the generating function of the number of particles arriving in the counting device during the dead time for the so called type II counter, and to make some remarks on the registrations of m types of particles (\(m\geq 1)\).
