Abstract: Let X1,X2, ... be independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) random variables with positive mean. Each random variable Xi is associated with a random time ti and t1, t2, ... are distributed according to a Poisson point process on [0, 1]. We would like to detect unusual behavior in a segment of the interval [0, 1]. For each 0 < x < y < 1, we compute a score S(x, y) which is large when there is unusual behavior in the interval [x, y]. Since x, y are unknown, we consider the maximum of these scores over 0 < x < y < 1, known in the statistical literature as scan statistics. We derive formulas for approximating the tail probabilities of these scan statistics and check them through numerical computations and simulation exercises.
