This note aims at presenting several new theoretical results for the compound Poisson point process, which follows the work of Zhang et al. (Insur. Math. Econ. 59:325–336, 2014). The first part provides a new characterization for a discrete compound Poisson point process (proposed by Aczél (Acta Math. Hung. 3(3):219–224, 1952)), it extends the characterization of the Poisson point process given by Copeland and Regan (Ann. Math. 37:357–362, 1936). Next, we derive some concentration inequalities for discrete compound Poisson point process (negative binomial random variable with unknown dispersion is a significant example). These concentration inequalities are potentially useful in count data regression. We give an application in the weighted Lasso penalized negative binomial regressions whose KKT conditions of penalized likelihood hold with high probability and then we derive non-asymptotic oracle inequalities for a weighted Lasso estimator.
