Abstract: The Sibuya distribution plays a crucial role in considering several discrete self-decomposable distributions which occure as stationary distribution in pure death processes with immigration. Here, some properties of the Sibuya distribution are studied.

Keywords: Discrete Linnik distributions, discrete stable and discrete stable and discrete Mittag-Leffler distributions, discrete self-decomposable, Sibuya distributions, stable distributions.
