How to show that

$$ \lim_{\alpha \rightarrow \infty} \sup_{t \in \left [0,T \right]} \left | e^{-\alpha t} \int _ 0 ^t e^{\alpha s} ~ dB_s \right | =0, \ \ \text{a.e.}$$

where $\left (B_s \right)_{s\geq 0}$ is a real standard brownian motion starting from zero ?

I'd like to have some ideas to deal with this problem. After all, I'll show some solutions that I propose and somme colegues also but that i believe be all wrong. (I just don't show know to don't interffer in your ideas.

Thank you all.

Here's one way of dealing with it. Integrate by parts to see that the expression under the sup is $$ \Bigl|B(t)-\alpha\int_0^t e^{\alpha(s-t)}B(s)ds\Bigr|\le\alpha\int_0^t e^{\alpha(s-t)}|B(t)-B(s)|ds +e^{-\alpha t}|B(t)|. $$

Now the result follows since $B$ is a.s.-bounded and a.s.-Holder on [0,T].
