Part of the Applications of Mathematics book series (SMAP, volume 5)


Let (Ω, F, P) be a complete probability space, and let (F t ), 0 ≤ t T, be a nondecreasing family of sub-σ-algebras of F, augmented by sets from F of probability zero. Let W = (W t , F t ) be a Wiener process and let γ = (γ t , F t ) be a random process with
$$P\left( {\int {_0^T} \gamma _s^2ds \infty } \right) = 1.$$
