Let pα,θ be the Linnik density, that is, the probability density with the characteristic function φα,θ(t) := 1/(1+eiθsgnt|t|α), (α,θ) ∈ P D, P D := {(α, θ) : 0 < α < 2, |θ| ≤ min(πα/2, π - πα/2)}. The following problem is studied: Let (α, θ), (β, θ) be two points of P D. When is it possible to represent pβ,θ as a scale mixture of pαθ? A subset of the admissible pairs (α, θ), (β, θ) is described.
