Abstract

We review what is currently known about one-dimensional distributions on the non-negative reals with rational Laplace transform, also known as matrix-exponential distributions. In particular we discuss a flow interpreation which enables one to mimic certain probabilisticly inspired arguments which are known from the theory of phase-type distributions. We then move on to present ongoing research for higher dimensions. We discuss a characterization result, some closure properties, and a number of examples. Finally we present open problems and future perspectives.
