We fix $T \in (0, \infty)$ and let $\TT$ be the interval $[0, T]$. Let $\sigma : \TT \times \RR^d \to \RR^d \otimes \RR^m$ be measurable. Let $a := \sigma \sigma^\top$. For simplicity, we denote $\sigma_t(x) := \sigma (t, x)$ and $a_t(x) := a (t, x)$. We assume there exist constants $C>0, 0 < \beta < 1$ such that for $t \in \TT$ and $x, y \in \RR^d$: \begin{align} \frac{1}{C} |y|^2 \le \langle a_t (x) y, y \rangle & \le C |y|^2, \label{main_assmpt1:ineq1} \\ |\sigma_t (x) - \sigma_t (y)| &\le C |x-y|^\beta. \label{main_assmpt1:ineq2} \end{align}

Let $(B_t, t \ge 0)$ be a $m$-dimensional Brownian motion and $\FF := (\mathcal F_t, t \ge 0)$ an admissible filtration on a probability space $(\Omega, \mathcal A, \PP)$. Let $X_0 : \Omega \to \RR^d$ be a $\mathcal F_0$-measurable random variable. Let $$ X_t := X_0 + \int_0^t \sigma(s, X_0) \diff B_s, \quad t \in \TT. $$

Let $t \in (0, T]$. Is the distribution of $X_t$ absolutely continuous w.r.t. the Lebesgue measure on $\RR^d$?

Thank you so much for your elaboration!
