### Phase space Brownian bridge

I understand the concept of the 1 dimensional Brownian bridge with the form of:
$$dx_t=\frac{-1}{1-t}x_t \, dt + dw_t$$
s.t. $x_0=0$ and $x_1=0$
where $dw_t$ is a Wiener process.
I am thinking about ...

### Recursive formula for approximate multiple Wiener integrals

Given $m$ $d$-dimensional Brownian motion and a multi-index $(j_1,...,j_l)$ with $j_i \in \{0,1,...,m\}$ we can define the multiple Stratonovich integral
$\int_0^t \circ dW_{s_1}^{j_1}...\int_0^{s_{l-...

### Finding the limit of a specific sequence of linear processes

Given a strictly stationary random process $(\xi_t)_{t \in \mathbb Z}$. Define $\mu:= E[\xi_t]$, for all $t$. Suppose $(\xi_t)_{t \in \mathbb Z}$ ergodic:
\begin{equation}\label{a}\tag{E}
\frac{1}{n}\...

### Understanding the approximation of a random sum of random processes

I want to understand an approximation of a compound Poisson distribution in this paper.
First, let's set the environment. Consider $\mathcal{P}$ the class of distributions of real-valued and strictly ...

### A double sum with complex numbers having stochastic variables

I am very confused by a sum I have been trying to solve analytically/ numerically for a long time. It comes from the idea of a physical problem where the observation is made that has a combined ...

### Adiabatic elimination of "fast"/"velocity" variable

My question comes from section IV, part A of the paper titled Stochastic resonance. Specifically, their equation (4.1) states that, if we start with a Langevin equation of the form $$m\ddot{x} = -m\...

### A semimartingale interpolation problem

This question is a direct extension of this one.
Let $(\Omega,\mathcal{F},(\mathcal{F}_t)_{t\geq 0},\mathbb{P})$ be a stochastic basis and let $N\in\mathbb{Z}^+$, $T>0$, $\{t_n\}_{n=1}^{N}$ be a ...

### A martingale extension/interpolation problem

Let $(\Omega,\mathcal{F},(\mathcal{F}_t)_{t\geq 0},\mathbb{P})$ be a stochastic basis and let $N\in\mathbb{Z}^+$, $T>0$, $\{t_n\}_{n=1}^{N}$ be a partition of $[0,T]$ with $t_0=0,t_n<t_{n+1},t_N=...

### Minimizing $\int\lambda({\rm d}y)\frac{\left|g(y)-\frac{p(y)}c\lambda g\right|^2}{r((i,x),y)}$ with respect to discrete parameter $i$

Let $I\subseteq\mathbb N$ be finite and nonempty, $(E,\mathcal E,\lambda)$ be a $\sigma$-finite measure space, $$\lambda f:=\int f\:{\rm d}\lambda$$ for $\lambda$-integrable $f:E\to\mathbb R$, $p:E\to(...

### Reference for the positive probability of convergence to a stable point of a stochastic approximation algorithm

Consider a stochastic approximation process with
$$x_{t+1} = x_t + \frac{1}{t} (g(x_t)+u_t)$$
where $(u_s)_s$ is a sequence of i.i.d. shocks.
Assume $g$ is Lipschitz, $u_t$ has finite variance, and ...
