Local time flow related to skew Brownian motion
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2001-10)
We define a local time flow of skew Brownian motions, i.e., a family of solutions to the stochastic differential equation defining the skew Brownian motion, starting from different points but driven by the same Brownian motion. We prove several results on distributional and path properties of the flow. Our main result is a ...
The boundary Harnack principle for non-divergence form elliptic operators
(Cambridge University Press, 1994)
If L is a uniformly elliptic operator in non–divergence form, the boundary Harnack principle for the ratio of positive L–harmonic functions holds in Hölder domains of order [alpha] if [alpha] > 1/2. A counterexample shows that 1/2 is sharp. For Hölder domains of order [alpha] with [alpha is an element of the set] (0, 1], the ...
2-D Brownian motion in a system of traps: Application of conformal transformations
(Institute of Physics, 1992)
We study two-dimensional Brownian motion in a periodic system of traps using conformal transformations. The system is periodic in the x and y directions. We calculate the ratio of the drift along the y-axis to the drift along the x-axis. The drift of the Brownian particle is induced by conditioning and by the asymmetry of the ...
A three-dimensional Brownian path reflected on a Brownian path is a free Brownian path
(Springer Science+Business Media B.V., 1993)
Three-dimensional Brownian path reflected on Brownian path is a free Brownian path.
A pair (X; Y) of Markov processes is called a Markov coupling if X and Y have the same transition probabilities and (X;Y) is a Markov process. We say that a coupling is "shy" if there exists a (random) [Epsilon] > 0 such that dist(X [subscript] t; Y [subscript] t) > [Epsilon] for all t [is greater than or equal to] 0. We ...
Hölder domains and the boundary Harnack principle
(Duke University Press, 1991-10)
A version of the boundary Harnack principle is proven.
A representation of local time for Lipschitz surfaces
(Springer-Verlag GmbH, 1990)
Suppose that D [is an element of the set of Real numbers to the power of n], n [is greater than or equal to] 2, is a Lipschitz domain and let N[subscript]t(r) be the number of excursions of Brownian motion inside D with diameter greater than r which started before time t. Then rN[subscript]t(r) converges as r --> 0 to a ...
Cut points on Brownian paths
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 1989-07)
Let X be a standard two-dimensional Brownian motion. There exists a.s. t [is an element of the set] (0; 1) such that X([0; t))[intersected with] X((t; 1]) = [empty set]. It follows that X([0; 1]) is not homeomorphic to the Sierpinski carpet a.s.
Non-intersection exponents for Brownian paths. Part I: Existence and an invariance principle
(Springer-Verlag GmbH, 1990)
Let X and Y be independent three-dimensional Brownian motions, X(0) = (0; 0; 0), Y (0) = (1; 0; 0) and let p [subscript]r = P(X[0; r] [intersected with] Y [0; r] = [empty set]. Then the "non- intersection exponent" [from] lim [subscript]r [to infinity] -log p [subscript]r / log r exists and is equal to a similar "non-intersection ...
Curvature of the convex hull of planar Brownian motion near its minimum point
(North-Holland (Elsevier), 1989-10)
Let f be a (random) real-valued function whose graph represents the boundary of the convex hull of planar Brownian motion run until time 1 near its lowest point in a coordinate system so that f is non-negative and f(0) = 0. The ratio of f(x) and |x|/|log |x|| oscillates near 0 between 0 and infinity a.s.
