Derivative with respect to initial condition for the solution of an SDE

Suppose we have an SDE (assuming the Lipschitz continuous conditions required for the existence of the solution): \begin{align} dX_t = \mu(X_t,t)dt + \sigma(X_t,t)dW_t \end{align} and define its ...

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 ...

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 ...
