In this paper we consider point processes Nf (t), t > 0, with independent increments and integer-valued jumps whose distribution is expressed in terms of Bernštein functions f with Lévy measure v. We obtain the general expression of the probability generating functions Gf of Nf , the equations governing the state probabilities pk f of Nf , and their corresponding explicit forms. We also give the distribution of the first-passage times Tk f of Nf , and the related governing equation. We study in detail the cases of the fractional Poisson process, the relativistic Poisson process, and the gamma-Poisson process whose state probabilities have the form of a negative binomial. The distribution of the times of jumps with height lj () under the condition N(t) = k for all these special processes is investigated in detail.
