I would like to submit to your wisdom the following questions.

Is it possible, mutatis mutandis, repeat the same reasoning for a fractional Brownian motion?

More specifically, A real valued Gaussian process $B^H:={B^H(t)}{t\geq 0}$ on a probability space $(\Omega,\mathscr{F},\mathbb{P})$ is a fractional Brownian motion (fBm) with Hurst parameter $H \in(0,1)$ if for all $s,t\in \mathbb{R}+$ we have

    1)  $B^H(0)=0$,

2) $\mathbb{E}B^H(t)=0$,


3) $\operatorname{Cov}[B^H(t),B^H(s)]=\frac{1}{2} \left(t^{2 H}+s^{2 H}-|t-s|^{2 H}\right)$.

In addition, the It\^o formula for fBm is written as: $$f(B^H(t))= \displaystyle\int_0^t f'\left(B^H(s)\right)\, d B^H(s) + H \displaystyle\int_0^t f''\left(B^H(s)\right) s^{2H-1}\, ds.$$ Taking the expectation in both sides of the above equality, we obtain: $$\mathbb{E}\left[f(B^H(t))\right]= H \displaystyle\int_0^t \mathbb{E}\left[f''\left(B^H(s)\right)\right] s^{2H-1}\, ds.$$ I might continue as; changing the expectation by the conditional expectation $\mathbb{E}_x$ with respect to the event ${X_0=x}$ where $X(t)=B^H(t)+ x$, it follows: $$\mathbb{E}_x\left[f(X^H(t))\right]= H \displaystyle\int_0^t \mathbb{E}_x\left[f''\left(X^H(s)\right)\right] s^{2H-1}\, ds.$$ And if we put $$m(x,t; H)= \mathbb{E}_x\left[f\left(X^H(t)\right)\right].$$ We get: $$\displaystyle\frac{\partial}{\partial t} m(x,t; H)= H \, t^{2H-1}\displaystyle\frac{\partial^2}{\partial x^2 }m(x,t; H)$$ Knowledge that fBm is not a semimartingale nor a Markov process except for cases $H=\frac{1}{2}$. I have some doubts about the last deduction.

Since you seem to have repeated this question, presumably in an effort to fix some of the formatting, I'm voting to close this as a duplicate. – Yemon Choi Jul 17 2011 at 23:42
