# Definition of multivariate martingale

I cannot find a proper definition of multivariate martingale. If each component is $1$-dimensional martingale is it enough for a $d$-dimensional process to be a martingale?

Thanks.

You mean the parameter set is still one-dimensional, and the values are in a vector space like $\mathbb R^n$? Then yes, the definition can be that each component is individually a martingale. Or abstractly that when we apply any linear functional, the result is a scalar-valued martingale.
The theory of martingales indexed by $\mathbb R \times \mathbb R$ was initiated in a memoir of Cairoli & Walsh (1975). A 1981 book of Korezliogly, Mazziotto & Szpirglas is a collection of articles on this topic. There is a general notion "block martingale" due to Frangos & Sucheston (1985), and work of Sucheston & Szabo (1991). The last chapter of Edgar & Sucheston math.osu.edu/~edgar/books/stdp.html has lots of this. –  GEdgar Nov 25 '11 at 22:32
