A first-order stochastic difference equation with random coefficients is shown to have a solution which makes the marginal distribution of the stationary sequence generated by the equation a convex mixture of two exponential distributions. This Markovian process should be broadly applicable in stochastic modelling in operations analysis. Moreover it can be extended quite simply to a mixed exponential process with mixed pth-order autoregressive and qth-order moving average correlation structure. Coupling of the processes to model multivariate situations is also discussed. (Author)
