On The Local Times of Fractional Ornstein–Uhlenbeck Process

  • Litan Yan
  • Ming Tian


In this short note, we study the local times of the fractional Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process X H with Hurst index 1/2<H<1 solving the Langevin equation with fractional noise
$$ \hbox{d}X_{t}^{H} = -X_{t}^{H} \hbox{d}t + \nu \hbox{d}B_{t}^{H}, \quad X_{0}^{H} = x, $$
where ν > 0 and B H is a fractional Brownian motion with Hurst index 1/2<H<1. We give Tanaka formula for the process and some properties of local times.
