Equicontinuity and $L^2$ convergence imply uniform convergence

I'm currently working through an old Paper of Garsia, Rodemich and Rumsey (A Real Variable Lemma) and theres one thing i don't get. Suppose $(f_n)_{n\in\mathbb{N}}$ is a sequence of continuous real ...

About the convergence rate for an approximation to the heat kernel

Let $G(t,x)$ be the heat kernel $$ G(t,x)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi t}}e^{-\frac{x^2}{2t}}, \quad t>0, \:x\in\mathbb{R}. $$ Here is one approximation to $G(t,x)$: $$ G_\epsilon(t,x)=e^{-t/\epsilon} ...

Fredholm Integral Involving Stochastic Process

I wish to solve an integral equation of the form $$g(X) = c\int_0^1 K(X,t)f(t) \ dt $$ where $f\in L^1([0,1])$ and $g$ is some function on finite sequences of random variables. So, $X$ is a stochastic ...

Markov operators and existence of ergodic measures

My question refers to the yesterday's question (see here) of John Learner and goes as follows: Can we deduce the existence of an ergodic measure if we know that an invariant measure exists, but the ...

How fast is discrete-time diffusion on a continuous set?

This question is inspired by Joseph O'Rourke's beautiful answer to my previous question. Let $\mathbb{S}^{d\times n}$ denote the set of real $d\times n$ matrices whose columns have unit norm and sum ...

Do there exist (almost surely) $C^{\infty}$-smooth Gaussian random fields?

Let $d \ge 1$. Do there exist Gaussian random fields on $\mathbb R^d$ which are (almost surely) $C^{\infty}$-smooth, but which are not analytic? If so, what are necessary and sufficient conditions ...

Does infinite-dimensional Brownian motion live in hyperplanes?

I'll begin this question with the finite-dimensional case, as a warmup. Let me say a continuous path $\omega : [0,1] \to \mathbb{R}^d$ is hyperplanar if there exists a nonzero $x \in \mathbb{R}^d$ ...
