Let $(W_{t})_{t\geq 0}$ be a standard Brownian Motion. Then it is easy to get the following inequality, using the Burkholder inequality: $\mathbb{E}\left[sup_{r\in\left[0,s\right]}\left|W_{t+r}-W_{t}\right|^{q}\right]\leq C_{q}s^{\frac{q}{2}}$. Is it possible to get a similar result for the fractional Brownian Motion instead of the usual Brownian Motion? I have already found some Burkholder Inequalities for the fBM but I cant really apply them to get such a result

Let $(B^{H}_{t})_{{t}\geq 0}$ be a fBM. Using stationarity we have $B^{H}_{t+r}-B^{H}_{t} = B^{H}_{r}$ in law. Then i could apply Theorem 1.1, right? – Peter Moor Sep 3 '12 at 18:38
And am I right, assuming, that this holds for all $H\in\left(0,1\right)$?Because Iam not considering stopping times. – Peter Moor Sep 3 '12 at 19:41
Can anyone give a feedback? – Peter Moor Sep 10 '12 at 11:22
