### On “for all” in if and only if statements in probability theory and stochastic calculus

1 In my friend's Probability Theory long test there was this question: Let $(\Omega, \mathfrak{F}, P)$ be a probability space on which is defined all sub-$\sigma$-algebras, events and random ...

### Determine if this is a Martingale

I am trying to check if the process $S_t$ is a martingale, where $\mathrm dS_t = \frac{I_{S_t > 0}}{S_t} \mathrm dW_t$, $S_0 = 1$. We know that $S_t$ is a local martingale because if we stop it ...

### Is any FV-Process a special Semimartingale?

Any FV-Process can be represented as the difference of two increasing (or decreasing) processes and so any FV-Process is a quasimartingale. Due to Raos Theorem any FV-Process is a special ...

### Finding dynamics of a dividend paying stock under arbitrary numeraire

Assuming I have a dividend paying asset $S$ with dividend process $D$. Now I would like to use the bank account process $B$ as numeraire and determine the dynamics of $S$ under the the corresponding ...

### Prove that a process is a martingale

Let $W_t$ be a Wiener process, and let $N_t$ be a Poisson process with intensity $\lambda$. We deﬁne a process $Z_t = \lambda Wt^2 − N_t$ Prove that the process $Z_t$ is a martingale

### Defining the Radon-Nikodym as a solution to an SDE

Can someone please clarify this to me: If I have the Radon-Nikodym $L_t=\frac{dQ}{dP}$, on $\mathcal{F}_t$, then I know that $L_t$ is a non-negative P-martingale. So in many textbooks they say it is ...

### Proving the martingale property of stochastic exponentials of pure jump processes

I am playing with different versions of compound-Poisson like processes with regime-switching features. Then I take stochastic exponentials of these to define a change of measure process. However, how ...

### Show that a process is no semimartingale

_Hello everyone! I got a little question about how to show that the process $X_t:=|B_t|^{\frac{1}{3}}$ is NOT a semimartingale. So far I tried to apply Ito. Since if $X_t$ was a semimartingale so is ...

### Jump diffusion process with sum of Poisson processes a martingale?

Hi Mathematics community, assume you have dynamics of a jump diffusion process consisting of a Brownian motion and a sum of compensated (not necessarily independent) Poisson processes, i.e. ...

### Show the following is Local Martingale

$X_t$ bessel square process which satisfies $$\mathop{dx_t}= 2(a+1) \mathop{dt} +2 \sqrt{x_t} \mathop{dB_t}$$ and $u$ is a function which satisfies $x^2 u'' +x u' -u(a^2 + b x^{2p+2})= 0$. How can I ...

### sup of a submartingale until $t$

My problem: For any submartingale $(X_s)_{s\geq0}$ and for all $t\geq0$ show that $\sup_{s\in[0,t]}\mathbb{E}[|X_s]|]$ is a.s. finite. What I have until now: I know that $\mathbb{E}[X_s]$ is ...

### Basic (continuous) martingale properties

I just learned about martingales in continuous time and solved some basic exercises. But unfortunately there are some seemingly easy and surely basic things I still have problems with. 1) Let ...

### Forming a local martingale with continuous increasing process

If $M_t$ is continuous martingale, we know that there exists quadratic variation process which is continuous and increasing. I am interested to know if the converse is also true. To make it precise ...

### $L^1$ bounded martingale

If $(M_t)_{0\leq t<\infty}$ is continuous martingale and it is $L^1$ bounded, does it imply that quadratic variation $\langle M\rangle_\infty$ is finite a.s. ?

### Characterization of hitting time's law. (Proof check)

Under the same assumptions of this early question, consider also a the random time $T_a := \inf\{ t > 0: B_t \geq a\}$ which is a stopping time. Since $M^\lambda$ is a continuous martingale, Doob's ...

### Checking proof that a given process is a martingale

I am interested in justify the well known result about the process $M^\lambda _t =\exp\left(\lambda B_t - \frac{\lambda^2}{2} t\right)$ being $\mathcal F_t$-martingale in the filtered probability ...

### If quadratic variation of a local martingale is zero then it is itself zero

Let $M$ be a local martingale, if we need it, we can assume that $M$ is continuous. We know that $\langle M\rangle =0$. This implies that $M$ and $M^2$ are local martingale. Can we conclude that ...
