The distribution of waiting times until the occurrence of a critical event is a crucial statistical problem across several disciplines in Science. In this work we present a statistical model in which a relevant quantity X accumulates until overcoming a threshold X∗, which defines the collapse. The obtained waiting time distribution is a mixture of gamma distributions, which in turn can be approximated as an effective gamma distribution.
