Persistence Exponents for Gaussian Random Fields of Fractional Brownian Motion Type
The fractional Brownian motion of index 0 < H < 1, H-FBM, with d-dimensional time is considered on an expanding set \( T\Delta \), where \( \Delta \) is a bounded convex domain that contains 0 at its boundary. The main result: if 0 is a point of smoothness of the boundary, then the log-asymptotics of the probability that H-FBM does not exceed a fixed positive level in \( T\Delta \) is \( (H - d + o(1))\log T,T \to \infty \). Some generalizations of this result to isotropic but not self-similar Gaussian fields with stationary increments are also considered.
