Total set of functions in $L^2(\Omega)$

Are the sets of functions $\{e^{\int_0^T h(s)dB_s -\frac{1}{2}\int_0^T h(s)^2 ds}\}$ and $\{e^{\int_0^T h(s)dB_s}\}$ total in $L^2(\Omega)$? What is the difference? What should one use to prove weak ...

Can infinitesimal generator be defined by the time-inhomogeneous stochastic process?

The following is the definition of infinitesimal generator from Oksendal. Let $\{X_t,t\in[0,T]\}$ be a time-homogeneous It\^o diffusion in $\mathbb{R}^d$. The $\textit{infinitesimal generator}$ ...
