### Distribution of a linear pure-birth process's integral

I stumbled across the following random variable, defined as the integral of a linear pure-birth process i.e. a Yule process:
$$
Z_t = \mathbb{E}\bigg[\int_0^t Y_s ds \bigg| Y_t=k \bigg]
$$
where $(...

### The distribution of the area of a region cut out by chordal SLE?

Let $\mathbb{D}$ be the unit disc. Let $a,b \in \partial \mathbb{D}$. Let $\gamma$ be a chordal $SLE_{k}$ from $a$ to $b$.
For $k \leq 4$, $\gamma$ is a simple curve, and so $\mathbb{D} \setminus \...

### Defining weak solutions to infinitely many SDEs on the same probability space

Suppose I have an SDE of the form
$$dX_t=b(X_t)dt+\sigma (X_t)dB_t+\int_{\mathbb{R}}G_{t-}(y)N(dtdy)$$
which I can solve weakly if I cut off the last integral to range over the set $\{\mid{y}\mid > ...

### An application of Girsanov's Theorem

Let $(W,H,i)$ be the classical Wiener space where $W=C_0([0,1])$, $H$ is the Cameron-Martin space. Let $A= I_{W}+a$ such that $A:W \rightarrow W$ and $a \in L^{0}(\mu,H)$, $a$ has adapted derivative, ...

It is well-known that Brownian motion attains infinitely many maxima in each time interval $[0,T]$ a.s..
From a physics perspective it seems reasonable that when the disorder of the path of a ...

### Obtaining a lower bound on the expectation using the Sudakov-Fernique inequality

In my work I wish to obtain a lower bound for the term below. Here the expectation is taken over $h$, a standard random Gaussian vector of length $n$. The minimum is taken over all $\{i_1,\dots,i_L\} \...

### A balls into bins problem with combinatorial constraints

We are given $m$ balls and $n$ bins, with $m \ge n$. Each bin can contain at most $c$ balls (we assume that $c$ is an even integer). In a sequential fashion, at each time step, one ball is placed into ...
