On some universal sigma-finite measures related to a remarkable class of submartingales


Najnudel, J; Nikeghbali, Ashkan (2012). On some universal sigma-finite measures related to a remarkable class of submartingales. Stochastic Processes and their Applications, 122(4):1582-1600.

Abstract

In this paper, for any submartingale of class (Sigma) defined on a filtered probability space (Omega, F, P, (F-t)(t >= 0)) satisfying some technical conditions, we associate a sigma-finite measure Q on (Omega, F), such that for all t >= 0, and for all events Lambda(t) is an element of F-t:

Q[Lambda(t), g <= t ] = Ep[1(Lambda t)X(t)].

where g is the last time for which the process X hits zero. The existence of Q has already been proven in several particular cases, some of them are related with Brownian penalization, and others are involved with problems in mathematical finance. More precisely, the existence of Q in the general case gives an answer to a problem stated by Madan, Roynette and Yor, in a paper about the link between the Black-Scholes formula and the last passage times of some particular submartingales. Moreover, the equality defining Q still holds if the fixed time t is replaced by any bounded stopping time. This generalization can be considered as an extension of Doob's optional stopping theorem.

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.
