By Daniel W. Stroock

This ebook goals to bridge the space among chance and differential geometry. It supplies structures of Brownian movement on a Riemannian manifold: an extrinsic one the place the manifold is discovered as an embedded submanifold of Euclidean house and an intrinsic one in response to the "rolling" map. it truly is then proven how geometric amounts (such as curvature) are mirrored via the habit of Brownian paths and the way that habit can be utilized to extract information regarding geometric amounts. Readers must have a robust heritage in research with easy wisdom in stochastic calculus and differential geometry. Professor Stroock is a highly-respected specialist in likelihood and research. The readability and elegance of his exposition extra improve the standard of this quantity. Readers will locate an inviting advent to the examine of paths and Brownian movement on Riemannian manifolds.

Choose ε > 0 such that εf 2+δ (s, x + Ws ) ds < 1. 0 Then, by Khas’minskii result, sup E e T 0 εf 2+δ (s,x+Ws ) ds x∈Rd < ∞. From Young inequality, there exists a constant Cε,δ > 0 such that f 2 ≤ εf 2+δ + Cε,δ . Then sup E e T 0 f 2 (s,x+Ws )ds x∈Rd The proof is complete. ≤ sup E e x∈Rd T 0 εf 2+δ (s,x+Ws )ds eCε,δ < ∞. 1 Regularization of Functions by Noise: Occupation Measure Fig. 5 Summary on Occupation Measure Let us summarize the previous achievements in terms of the occupation measure. It is only a reformulation, but it has a stronger intuitive impact if we figure out the “shape” of this measure.

2 depends on ϕ. For every ϕ ∈ L∞ Rd , there exists a full measure set Ωϕ ⊂ Ω such that for all ω ∈ Ωϕ the function x → μT,x+W (ω) (ϕ) defined on rational points x ∈ Rd is uniformly continuous (in fact α-H¨older continuous for all α < 1), and thus admits a unique uniformly continuous extension to Rd . But the set Ωϕ depends on ϕ: ∩ϕ∈L∞ (Rd ) Ωϕ is negligible. 1. There is no measurable set A ⊂ Ω with P (A) > 0 such that for all ω ∈ A and all ϕ ∈ L∞ Rd the function x → μT,x+W (ω) (ϕ) defined on rational points x ∈ Rd is uniformly continuous.

Let us prove it by contradiction. Let A be such a set. e. ω). Take ϕ equal to 1 on the support of W (ω0 ), zero elsewhere. Then μT,x+W (ω0 ) (ϕ) is equal to one for x = 0, but, denoting by μT,x+W (ω0 ) (ϕ) the uniformly continuous extension to the whole Rd , T Rd μT,x+W (ω0 ) (ϕ) dx = 0 T Rd ϕ (x + Wt ) dxdt = ϕ (x) dxdt = 0 0 Rd because the Lebesgue measure of the support of W (ω0 ) is zero. Hence μT,x+W (ω0 ) (ϕ) = 0 for all x ∈ Rd (recall it is uniformly continuous). Thus we must have μT,W (ω0 ) (ϕ) = 0, which contradicts μT,W (ω0 ) (ϕ) = 1 found above.
