Intersection local time for points of infinite multiplicity
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 1994-04)
For each a [is an element of the set] (0, 1/2), there exists a random measure [beta] [subscript] a which is supported on the set of points where two-dimensional Brownian motion spends a units of local time. The measure [beta] [subscript] a is carried by a set which has Hausdorff dimension equal to 2−a. A Palm measure ...
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 ...
Stochastic bifurcation models
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 1999-01)
We study an ordinary differential equation controlled by a stochastic process. We present results on existence and uniqueness of solutions, on associated local times (Trotter and Ray-Knight theorems), and on time and direction of bifurcation. A relationship with Lipschitz approximations to Brownian paths is also discussed.
Erratum to The Supremum of Brownian Times on Hölder Curves
For [function] f [maps the set]: [0, 1] [into the set] [Real numbers], we consider L [superscript] f [subscript] t , the local time of spacetime Brownian motion on the curve f. Let S [subscript][sigma] be the class of all functions whose Hölder norm of order [sigma] is less than or equal to 1. We show that the supremum of L ...
The supremum of Brownian local times on Holder curves
For f : [maps the set] [0, 1] [into the set of real numbers] R, we consider L ([to the power of] f [subscript] t), the local time of spacetime Brownian motion on the curve f. Let S [subscript alpha] be the class of all functions whose Holder norm of order [alpha] is less than or equal to 1. We show that the supremum of L ...
A probabilistic proof of the boundary Harnack principle
(Birkhauser Boston, Inc., 1990)
The main purpose of this paper is to give a probabilistic proof of Theorem 1.1, one using elementary properties of Brownian motion. We also obtain the fact that the Martin boundary equals the Euclidean boundary as an easy corollary of Theorem 1.1. The boundary Harnack principle may be viewed as a Harnack inequality for ...
Positivity of Brownian transition densities
(Electronic Journal of Probability, 1997-09-24)
Let B be a Borel subset of R [to the power of] d and let p(t, x, y) be the transition densities of Brownian motion killed on leaving B. Fix x and y in B. If p(t, x, y) is positive for one t, it is positive for every value of t. Some related results are given.
A critical case for Brownian slow points
(Springer-Verlag GmbH, 1996-01)
Let X [subscript] t be a Brownian motion and let S(c) be the set of reals r [is greather than or equal to] 0 such that |X ([subscript] r+t) − X [subscript] r| [is less than or equal to] c [square root of] t, 0 [is less than or equal to] t [is less than or equal to] h, for some h = h(r) > 0. It is known that S(c) is empty if ...
Eigenvalue expansions for Brownian motion with an application to occupation times
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 1996-01-31)
Let B be a Borel subset of R [to the power of] d with finite volume. We give an eigenvalue expansion for the transition densities of Brownian motion killed on exiting B. Let A [subscript] 1 be the time spent by Brownian motion in a closed cone with vertex 0 until time one. We show that lim [subscript] u [approaching] 0 log P ...
On the Robin problem in fractal domains
We study the solution to the Robin boundary problem for the Laplacian in a Euclidean domain. We present some families of fractal domains where the infimum is greater than 0, and some other families of domains where it is equal to 0. We also give a new result on "trap domains" defined in [BCM], i.e., domains where reflecting ...
