Convergence in Law to Operator Fractional Brownian Motions

  • Hongshuai Dai


In this paper, we provide two approximations in law of operator fractional Brownian motions. One is constructed by Poisson processes, and the other generalizes a result of Taqqu (Z. Wahrscheinlichkeitstheor. Verw. Geb. 31:287–302, 1975).
