Some applications of duality for Lévy processes in a half-line


Bertoin, J; Savov, M (2011). Some applications of duality for Lévy processes in a half-line. Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 43(1):97-110.

Abstract

The central result of this paper is an analytic duality relation for real-valued Lévy processes killed upon exiting a half-line. By Nagasawa's theorem, this yields a remarkable time-reversal identity involving the Lévy process conditioned to stay positive. As examples of applications, we construct a version of the Lévy process indexed by the entire real line and started from−∞, which enjoys a natural spatial-stationarity property, and we point out that the latter leads to a natural Lamperti-type representation for self-similar Markov processes in (0, ∞) started from the entrance point 0+.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
