Differentiating Exponential matrix Expression

To give the scalar version first: For the well known Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process: $dr(t)=\alpha(b-r(t))dt+\sigma dW(t)$ It is well known that the variance is: $\sigma_r^2=\sigma^2 \int_u^t\exp^{-2 ...

Addition corresponds to convolution and subtraction?

We know that if two random variables have proper densities, than the density of the sum of them is given by the convolution. But what can we say about the difference of two random variables? $X-Y$ ...

Simple integral with stochastic Brownian motion integrand

Consider $$\int_0^t \sin(B_s) ds$$ where $B_s$ is standard Brownian motion, I was wondering can I write $$\int_0^t \sin(B_s) ds = - ( \cos(B_t) - \cos(B_0)) = - \cos(B_t) ? $$ by using the ...

Independence random variables

I found two theorems in my notes and they seem to be somewhat complementary which made me doubt that both of them are true: a) Let $X,Y: \Omega \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ be a measurable function and ...

Unbiased estimate $\lambda^2$

Given a Poisson distribution I want to figure out whether $d:(x_1,...,x_n) \mapsto x_1^2$ and $d':(x_1,...,x_n) \mapsto x_1x_2$ are unbiased estimations for $\lambda^2$ ? I mean it would sound ...

Proof that a median minimizes 1-norm. [duplicate]

I was wondering whether there is an easy way to show the following: We have a data set $x_1,...,x_n$ and $m$ is a median if for at least half of the n data points we have that $x_i \le m$ and for ...

How to prove d($\int_t^\infty$$e^{-ru}d\beta_u$)=-$e^{-rt}d\beta_t$?

I found it difficult to state clearly that: d($\int_t^\infty$$e^{-ru}d\beta_u$)=-$e^{-rt}d\beta_t$ , but intuitively it is correct, isn't it? I guess the Gaussian property of the integral may be used ...

Expectation of $n$-dimensional Inverse Bessel Process

I think the main problem for me is to calculate the integral of $$\int_{0}^{\infty}\frac{e^{-\frac{r^2}{2t}}}{\sqrt{x^2+r^2}}r^{n-1}dr,n\geq2$$ For n=2, change of variable $y=\sqrt{x^2+r^2}$ would ...

Second derivative of Brownian motion?

My question is, we give a meaning to the following expression: $$dX(t) = \mu(t,X(t))dt + \sigma(t,X(t))dW(t), \ \ X(0)=x.$$ where $W$ is a Wiener process. This equation can be thought as ...
