### Unique EMM & completeness in the Black-Scholes model

Consider the Black-Scholes model
$$ dS(t) = \mu(t) S(t) dt + \sigma(t) S(t) dW^{\mathbb{P}}(t) $$
$$ dB(t) = r(t) B(t) dt$$
Steele shows now in "Stochastic Calculus & Financial Applications" (Ch. ...

### Is it safe to work on a Cadlag modification of a Feller process?

Let $f$ be a continuous bounded function.
$X$ is a Feller process, and $\hat X$ is its Cadlag modification. By the definition of the modification, one can write
$$\mathbb E[f(X_t)] = \mathbb E[f(\hat ...

### Is zero a regular point for a drifted $\alpha$-stable process?

We consider 1-d process of the form $Y_{t} = bt + M_{t}^{\alpha}$,
where $M_{t}^{\alpha}$ is $\alpha$-stable process for some $\alpha
\in (0,2)$ with its levy symbol $\eta(u) = - |u|^{\alpha}.$,
and $...

### Asymptotics of Variable Drift Ornstein–Uhlenbeck Process

The Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process is defined as the stochastic process that solves the following SDE:
$dx_t = \theta (\mu-x_t)\,dt + \sigma\, dW_t$
where $\theta>0$, $\mu$ and $\sigma>0$ are ...
