# On Distributions of One Class of Random Sums and their Applications

### Abstract

We propose results of the investigation of properties of the random sums of random variables. We consider the case, where the number of summands is the first moment of an event occurrence. An integral equation is presented that determines distributions of random sums. With the help of the obtained results we analyse the distribution function of the time during which the Geiger-Muller counter will not lose any particles, the distribution function of the busy period of a redundant system with renewal, and the distribution function of the sojourn times of a single-server queueing system.### References
